    I made this, in cupcake form. I didn't have any oatbran, so used a multi grain bran cereal that I did have on hand. I also added approx 1/3 cup of natural, chopped, dates. With the dates added, and made into cupcakes, still 125 calories per serving. YUM! - 9/7/07

    I am not a huge fan of banana nut bread but my husband is, so I make it for him a few times per year. I tried a small slice while it was warm and it was absolutely delightful and super moist. My husband loved it too, not knowing it was low in fat. Great recipe! I used unsweetened applesauce. - 9/27/09

    Just tried this banan bread. OMG. It is excellent. The only thing I changed was adding walnuts due to personal preference. Also, next time I may turn down the oven a bit, it was really dark and crispy when baked but still good. - 4/3/09

    I'm always looking for something to do with my banana that I don't quiet get to. I used brown sugar splenda substitute for the sugar. It's a little on the sweet side, but I might have not calculated for the substitutions. Overall it's a nice hearty bread. - 10/19/09

    I used 1/3 cup of honey instead of sugar as I have run out of brown sugar. I also had only 100ml of apple sauce not 1/2 a cup. I used wheat bran not oat bran as that is also what I have on hand. The calorie count is basically the same (4 calorie per slice difference). Very good. - 10/13/10

    I just made this and it is really good. I sprinkled a little bit of sugar and cinnamon over the top of the mixture before baking. It turned into a crisp layer which melts in your mouth.

  • What a great recipe. Now I can use my ripe bananas for bread anytime. After a couple samples, I've added another banana (total 3) to get more banana flavor. The Oat Bran is fabulous, but I think overpowers the taste. Revised, baked, and consumed this morning--Wonderful!! - 8/27/11
