I made the recipe with half the sugar and used 1 cup wheat flour, 1/2 cup white flour, 1/4 cup each of wheat germ and flax seed. The rest of the recipe stayed the same. Then I took out about 1/3 of the batch mixed in 1-2 tablespoons of strawberry jam and put that into a mini loaf pan (baked for 25 min) and the rest went into a small loaf pan (baked for 45 min). They both turned out great. I like the strawberry-banana bread the best. Both were light and fluffy. Thanks for the recipe.
Very nice recipe! I made this this morning to bring to work and I made it into muffins. Here are a few notes that I made: August 20, 2008: 1. I used 6 VERY ripe bananas as that is what I had handy 2. I used Splenda instead of sugar 3. I used unsweetened applesauce 4. I used 1/3 cup of liquid egg whites instead of eggs 5. I used 2 cups of Whole Wheat Flour instead of All-Purpose Flour 6. I added 1/4 cup of Wheat Germ 7. I added 1 teaspoon of cinnamon 8. I made these into 12 large muffins using my Pampered Chef Stoneware Muffin Pan 9. My baking time was exactly 28 minutes (perfection!) Shelly, I hope you don't mind all the changes that I made to your wonderful recipe; I just try to eat as healthy as possible. I will let you know what the girls say when I get home later on tonight. Thanks again for posting! Oh yeah, I took a picture and will have it posted on here shortly. :-)
This is delicious. I used Heart Smart Bisquick instead of flour, baking powder, salt, and baking soda. It came out great.
Love this recipe!!! As an added touch, used this wonderful banana bread for french toast. Topped with bananas and strawberries, AMAZING!!!!
Delightful with a few of my own tweaks! I added about a tablespoon of lemon juice (lightens the banana bread in both color and texture), used half all-purpose and half white-whole wheat flour, and added chocolate chips (about 3/4 cup). YUM! I will no longer be making my filled-with-butter recipe! BTW, this freezes really well. I slice it and wrap each piece, (ready to take to work), then place in a freezer container and pop in the freezer.
Great recipe! I used President's Choice unsweetened
The bread is too salty for my family & I palate. It rised nicely, looked scrumptious & smelled wonderful. I give it 2 stars for that.
I used 1 cup wheat flour and 1 cup white. I cut sugar down to 1/2 cup and added walnuts, flax seeds and millets. I used sweetened applesauce and felt I it could have been just as good even a little less sweet, so I will try unsweetened next time. This was very yummy, thank you!
Delicious!! as a couple of others mentioned I did use half brown sugar, half caster sugar and did add some cinnamon nutmeg and cloves & my applesauce was unsweetened. Made 12 large muffins. will definately make again and again : )
Excellent recipe! I was looking for a lower fat banana bread recipe and this is it for sure! No butter at all yet soooo moist and delicious. I did use brown sugar instead of white sugar. I think you could even use 1/2 - 3/4c of sugar and it would still be great!
