      Awesome! I used some VERY RIPE (black) bananas that had been in my freezer and was happy with how well it turned out. I make it in 2 smaller loaf pans and baked for about 40 minutes and plan and giving 1 to the new neighbor. I used 1/4 tsp. of lemon peel (from my spice rack) since I didn't have any fresh lemons on hand. Like others, I also added about a tsp. of vanilla, just because :-) Definitely a keeper and I will make it again.

      Absolutely Delicious! I used less flour in mine and added quick oats (1/4 cup) to add a little bit more nutritional value but other than that I followed the recipe to a "T" and it's fantastic! Thank you!

      Very good! Crisp outside and soft inside. I substituted 1/4 cup oats for 1/4 cup of the flour and did not use the almonds or lemon zest. Mine was a little overdone after being in for an hour, so I'd bake it for less, probably 50-55 minutes. I will definitely make this again.
