I also happened to have everything on hand to make this recipe. Which in my kitchen is unusual. I found it incrediblly easy to make, I did the whole thing in the food processer!!! Because I don't like to have a whole "loaf" on hand at once, I made it in my muffin tins, and baked them only 20 minutes. I got 24 nice sized muffins,that were very moist, and had a good flavor. In half of them I put chocolate chips, because my daughter likes them. I would love to be able to figure out how to put peanut butter in them. This recipe will replace my old favorite!!

I had some over-ripe bananas, so I came here to look for a banana bread recipe. I happened to have all the ingredients on hand needed for this recipe, so I tried it. I am glad I did. This bread was nice and dense, yet very moist, and most of all incredibly delicious. It makes a very filling snack or breakfast, and it's easy to make too! (A big plus in my book.) I doubled the recipe to make 2 loaves, and it worked perfectly. Thanks for sharing your will become a regular in our house.
