    This was very moist bread. I put in 1/4 cup margarine and 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce, and 1 tsp. cinnamon. It was good with a slight sweetness to it. - 2/25/10

  • YUM! I left out the honey & it was still really sweet. It makes a big loaf (took over an hour & the edges got dark) May work well breaking it up in two muffin pans, or 2 smaller loaf pans.
    Delicious! - 2/3/10

  • VERY good. I have made many all purpose banana breads and this beats them all. It was actually very sweet too. I might have put too much honey :) I use 1/2 cup applesauce, 1/4 butter, 1 egg. - 2/18/09

  • Yum! Only had 2 bananas, so I added about a 1/2 cup each lowfat vanilla yogurt and applesauce, an extra 1/2 cup or so of flour, & 1/2 cup pecans. I made 6 muffins and 1 loaf of bread from it. Really moist for whole wheat! Next time I'll add some spices (cinnamon, ginger...mmm:) - 1/18/09

    This was a fantastic recipe! I did alter it a bit. Instead of two eggs I used 1/4c egg start and 1/4c applesauce. Instead of 1/2c butter I used 1/4c Smart Balance and 1/4c olive oil. I used 5 bananas and instead of salt I used potassium substitute. I also added a pinch of cinnamon. Fantastic recipe! - 1/18/09

  • This was really good! We added 1/2 cup chopped pecans. Next time, I'll make it in two loaf pans...it took FOREVER to bake and the edges were a little too well done. The inside was WONDERFUL, though! - 1/4/09
