    This looks like standard banana bread recipe. I use brown sugar instead of white sugar. Whole wheat flour instead of white flour, skim milk instead of buttermilk and I add applesauce to moisten. The loaf doesn't last too long in my house! - 2/5/09

    This looks like a standard banana bread recipe. I'm sure it's delicious but if you want a low fat version, I recommend substituting apple sauce or yogurt for part or all of the butter. If you use apple sauce, decrease the sugar a bit. - 2/5/09

    This is the same recipe I use all the time, and it's definitely not low fat. I've always modified it and added some vanilla (not banana flavoring), and divided the sugar using 1/2 the amount granulated, and 1/2 brown sugar. Super yummy! Not lowfat. - 2/5/09

    This IS a good recipe. I put extra banana and it was very moist and yummy. However, it's definitely not lowfat. And it's impossible to get 24 servings out of this recipe, so a decent serving size it actually about 2 or 2.5 of the recommended serving sizes, which is close to 300 cals or more. - 12/23/08
