    A Messy Cook's Note:

    "Just right!" Delicious, moist, and wholesome. This bread (a favorite with my brothers) uses no refined grains or sugars. Plus, it uses up those overripe bananas sitting on the counter! White whole wheat flour is made from a softer grain than regular WW, so it has a more tender texture but the same health benefits. Using it allows you to get all the fiber and nutrition of whole grains, but not risk turning out a hard, dry loaf! :) Besides white whole wheat, the bananas, applesauce, and wheat germ ensure that this bread is moist and flavorful. It freezes very well, so eat one loaf now and save the other one for later -- if you have any left over to freeze, that is!

      Wow!!! If I could give this 10 stars, I would. It is SO moist and yummy! I followed the recipe exactly as it is here, I just used a 4 oz. applesauce cup because then there was no measuring needed. One of the best banana breads I have tried!

      Awesome. Used ground flax seed instead of wheat germ, was very impressed with how well it turned out. My toddler ate almost an entire loaf - BIG HIT!!

      Messy Cook, this bread is absolutely wonderful! Light, moist, and delicious, with a nice crunchy crust. SO good for you, too! I used light olive oil, 4 oz applesauce (one of those snack cups), and about 2 1/4 cups bananas, just because that's what I had, and part local honey which I was trying to clear out of the pantry. Baked for 55 minutes. The loaves stuck like the dickens so next time I'll line the bottoms of the loaf pans with parchment paper. We always have ripe bananas and this is a great healthy way to use them up. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
