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 recipe...it will become a regular in our house.

This is a very tasty recipe. I added vanilla because I just love it in banana bread. I will definately make this again. I too used my food processor and made muffins instead of a loaf. Thanks!!

This was very easy to make using simple ingredients. I didn't add nuts but I made muffins and baked at 350 for 30 minutes. That's perfect for muffins. The second time I made these I added some dried cranberries at the end which was also a nice touch. I've been using this recipe all the time. Thank you for sharing.

I just finished making this recipe with my 20 month old, who loves to help out in the kitchen. The only modifications I made was adding 1 tsp. of vanilla, 1/2 of lemon juiced and using bread flour instead of all-purpose flour. It is incredibly moist and not super sweet. It's just simple and delicious banana bread. Thank you for the recipe!

Thanks for posting. I couldn't find my banana bread recipe and found yours which is the same basic recipe. I have been making it for years and love how it tastes. I think my kids would notice if I made any changes. My recipe had two differences. My called for one stick of softened butter and 1 tsp. of lemon juice added to the mushed up bananas. I have learned that the lemon juice is the acid needed to activate the baking soda. One hint for anyone who loves banana bread: when you can't make the bread and the bananas need to be used, peel them in sets of three and put into a freezer bag. When you are ready to make it pull the freezer bag out let it dethaw in micro or counter for a bit and mush the bananas right in the bag before adding to the mixture.

This is now the defacto banana bread in our house. We altered it to use 1/2 whole wheat and added a few glops of non-fat yogurt (probably a cup). It's delicious.
