I made this with a few tweaks to cut down on fat & sugar/ I used half Splenda, half sugar & half butter, half apple sauce but eveything else as stated. The texture was probably more dense due to my changes but I thought it was still great & not so much guilt from eating it. I got 2 small loaves & approx 9 bite size muffins from the mix. A keeper for me who always has an abundance of lemons on hand!

Easy to put together! I used about 4 bananas to get the 1 1/2 cups mashed. I baked for one hour and the top was a bit too brown but the inside was really moist. I may add a little more lemon zest next time too. I could really taste it in the batter, but not as much baked. Overall a great tasting bread and I was able to get it in the oven within 10 minutes.
