Ok this recipe is a great base to create from. I used it with a gluten free flour mix added 2T cinnamon, 1/8 tsp clove, 1/4 tsp-1/2 salt, 1/4 tsp ginger and walnuts along with choc chips. My kid and hubby and visitors all raved at how great it was. Especially gluten free. I just made it again. It is five stars with the alterations.

Worst recipe ever. Bread tasteless, no sweetness at all. I wonder if the 1/4 c sugar is a mistake. Every other recipe I looked at called for at least 1 cup. Would never make this again, and have to throw the one I did make away.

This is a great banana bread recipe! Did a few little tweaks - I buttered the loaf pan then sprinkled it with cinnamon and sugar (a tip I picked up years ago-it adds a little somethin', somethin' to the outside crust). Sifted the flour ingredients together, then added 1/3 cup chopped walnuts and 2/3 cup of dark chocolate chips. Added 1 tsp vanilla to wet ingredients. **NOTE: I had to use 4 bananas to get 2 cups** Sprinkled a little cinnamon sugar on top before putting in oven. Was done around 55 mins. in our oven. Bread had good crumb inside and had nice crunch to outside. Tasted yummy with a good cup of coffee. Will make again for sure!
