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.

If you follow the recipe as it's written it's very disappointing. I made it exactly as it's posted. It turned out so bland that I ate the chocolate chips out of my slice and threw the rest away. My 8 year old and 10 year old were not impressed either. The only reason this is a 5 star recipe is because of people making changes to the recipe and then rating it based on their changes. I wouldn't make this again.

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!
