i made these with unsweetened applesauce instead of marjarine and added a 1/2 cup of chopped walnuts and 2 oz of chocolate chips and a couple tsps of cinnamon . i ended up with 14 muffins 125 calories each and really yummy!
I never would have believed this was made with all whole wheat flour- it came out so fluffy and moist! I made a few ajdustments: I halved the margarine and added 1/8 cup applesauce, 1 tsp vanilla, 2 tsp cinnamon, and a handful of rolled oats. I will definitely be making this again.
I love these. I changed margerine to applesauce. I also added the vanilla and cinnamon like others. I also added choc chips (1.5 oz.) It only changed to 115 cal and 1.9 g fat. I will definatley make these again.
This is a great banana bread. My family loved it too. The only thing was that I put it in for an hour and took it out after 50 minutes and it was already done, a little overcooked. So I would recommend putting it in 40-45 minutes and checking it. Still delicious though!
I made these as muffins - built in portion control! I made 12 muffins and baked for 23 minutes and they were great! I like things a little sweeter, so next time I am going to add another tbsp of splenda. Great way to use overripe bananas!
I made two versions of this , one the original and the other with some nutmeg and cinnamon.The first I thought was really good until I made the later version. Really, Really good. I think I'll try it with some peanut butter as well. Well done, thank you for the recipe.
Loved this! I've been meaning to make banana bread for a while- I think I was unconsciously waiting for this recipe! I also 1/2d the margarine (actually used butter) and added 1/8 c of applesauce, plus 1/2 c of milk chocolate chips. Also, I put it into 2 slightly smaller loaf pans for 24 servings
This was really good. I didnt have vanilla extract and I didn't use the splenda but substituted with cinnamon. It's killing me not to eat more than my serving size. I can't wait to make this again.
I made it!! So good! I used only half the butter and added 1/4 C. Pumkin Puree. I didn't have honey. It definatley would better with the honey. Next time I will follow the suggestions of adding cinnamon.
I have a hard time slicing correctly. (There are only two slices in any loaf of bread-the left side and the right side). I will make these into cupcakes instead. Thanks for the recipe as well.
I really liked it as did my wife & I really am not a person who bakes. Would make it again. I included everything as suggested in the recipe but in end did include whole egg. Only baked for 40 minutes and it was done
I checked it at 30 minutes and it was already a little burnt. It's also dry. It will probably taste better with marg. or butter which is going to make it unhealthy. Next time I'll cook it for less time and add some cinnamon for a little more flavor.
I made this exactly as written with no additions or subtractions. It didn't do much to satisfy my sweet craving. It needed more sugar and/or honey. It also needed more banana to counteract the drying effect of using all whole wheat flour.
This recipe is fantastic. My wife didn't have a bread pan so she put the batter into a 12-muffin muffin pan. It is convenient that the recipe makes 12 servings. However it makes it too easy to just grab another. They are so good they are hard to resist. Thanks for the recipe!
I made this today (muffins because I don't have a loaf pan at the moment) and it came out alright. I should have read the other comments first and would have added vanilla and cinnamon. It lacks flavor otherwise. Will make again with revised recipe!
Pretty good. I don't have a sifter, so that's probably why mine didn't turn out as light as the others. I'll definitely have to get one of those. It was done after 45-50 min. I used applesauce instead of butter, but next time I'll probably use extra banana instead. Good with pecans.
I loved it. I, too, doctored up the basic recipe. I had 5 large very ripe bananas and used them all. I used 1 tsp cinnamon, 'the pink sugar substitute' and about 1/4 cup choc chips, baked in muffin pan; made 12 nice sized muffins which were wonderful. The whole wheat flour added a nice crunch
I just made this for breakfast. I will be saving this recipe!! I also used 1/4 cup of unsweetened applesauce instead of margarine (I always use it as a substitute in baking) and I added cinnamon and vanilla and also shredded zucchini as I have a ton to use up from my garden. Very delicious!!!
I love it all the way around. I added nutmeg and cinnamon and I used almond extract vs vanllia (for the nutty taste). I added 4 banana's and well in the it is so moist. I will proudly us this recipe again.
I thought this was really good for a low-fat alternative. My family really enjoyed it, and I had a slice in the morning as part of my breakfast for a few days. It satisfied my cravings for muffins...yeah.
I made this using Splenda and Splenda brown sugar blend and omitted the sugar and honey since I am diabetic and wanted to avoid the extra sugar. I added an extra tablespoon of water. They came out great!
Seriously, this is a marvelous recipe!! I was skeptical about the muffins being 'light and fluffy'. Tis all true! I've just eaten 2 fresh out of oven. I followed recipe-added a few walnuts--yummy. Also remembered to add a few choc chips to a small loaf; probably will leave them out next time.
This recipe is wonderful! I took everyone's advice and used unsweetened applesauce instead of margarine, cinnamon and vanilla - how delicious! I also made muffins and I am restraining myself from eating them all before everyone else gets one! Thank you!
ya know this is wonderful. If you actually use I can't believe it's not butter spray you could even save some more calories and such. For this spray is liquid, tastes great and has no fat or calories in it. I can't use butter or margarine anymore. :-) Jamie
My husband loves my regular banana bread recipe but this is my favorite so far. He's just going to have to suck it up and eat it. Or else I will with no regrets. Thanks for the low fat recipe.
This was really good. Even my husband ~ who hates anything that says "whole wheat" loved them! Isn't it great to make something that everyone enjoys and asks for more!? Thank you so much for sharing.
My first time making banana bread - and I liked it. I didnt have baking soda so I left it out - and I used 4 tbs splenda instead of the sugar...turned out good! Didnt rise very much - but I expected that without baking soda...I recommend this recipe!
This recipe produces delicious banana bread. The only reason for a 4 star rather than 5 star review is the directions. No mention of pan size was made (loaf pans come in more than one size). I used a 9x5 metal loaf pan and my bread was perfectly done when I checked it at 45 minutes.
WOW!! Really good, I made these with apple sauce instead of margarine, used almond milk instead of real milk and added vanilla and cinnamon too. They came out perfect at only 80 CALORIES each!! I used a 12 muffin tin with cooking spray
I made this and added 1/2 cup walnuts and 1/2 cup cranberries. I added 1/2 cup more milk since I was adding the walnuts. I was so surprised how moist it came out being whole wheat flour. It was a hit at my office feast. Will make a gain for sure.
I didn't have any honey so I substituted it (and the sugar) with splenda, the margarine with apple sauce; egg whites with egg beaters, milk with 2% milk... and it turned out yummy! (Hubby went back for seconds.)
