This was great! I made it as muffins & it was done after 20 minutes. Everyone at my Sunday school class loved them! Thank you!

This is delicious and moist. There aren't any flavors to detract from the banana. I made one loaf in a 9 x 5 pan, and it took over an hour at 350 degrees. Really good, thank you!
