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.

Chef yummy yum yum! May 12, 2010

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.

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.

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!

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!
