I made this yesterday and for a diabetic recipe..I think it is great! I used Brummel and Brown spread for the low fat margarine and used 1% milk for the coconut milk. I also added some walnuts. I like the bread ok, but I would suggest that if you do not use the coconut milk or soy milk it would be a good idea to add a little bit of sweetner. I will be adding some Splenda to this recipe next time and see what that does. I like a real strong banana taste so I would also add another banana. The bread is good and I am enjoying it. I will definately make again..thanks for the recipe. Barb
This was ok...not sweet at all, more like slightly banana-flavored whole wheat bread than banana bread. Definitely add some sweetener and more banana. Probably won't make again.
