Really good bread :D I discovered a little too late that my applesauce had gone bad, so I used veggie oil instead. I also added a little extra sugar. That kinda defeats the point of it, but it still tasted amazing :D I usually use walnuts in my banana bread, but I really enjoyed these cashews :D I'll be using them from now on. Thanks for this awesome recipe! :D

I love the health factor! I used 3 med bananas and added a small splash of vanilla (about 1/2 a tsp) and used pecans which I chopped quite small. Next time I would add another tbsp of the Splenda. That said let me assure you that it's very edible. A few mins after I took it out of the oven I discovered that we have a "fish truck" that comes to town twice a year. Yesterday was the day and I had to go check it out of course. After taking my time to look over his list and making a couple of purchases I returned to find that DH and DS took a coffee break and had enjoyed the warm banana bread with butter and honey. There was a scrap left for me to try *sigh*.

I am rating these a 5 based on the healthy factor. These are mighty good muffins for being so darn healthy! I really enjoyed the cashews, which I've never tried in a muffin before. I used Splenda in place of sugar. Next time, I might throw in one more tablespoon of Splenda. Thank you for such a yummy and healthy breakfast treat!

This is good and healthy, but lacked some flavor for my family. It was pretty moist, however. I did enjoy the nuts in the bread. Thanks for sharing!

This bread has a lovely flavor but the texture is a bit too dense for our liking. Right out of the oven they were soft and light but the next morning we found them just too dense. When I warmed them it was better so I'm wondering if a bit more applesauce would help with the moisture/texture of the bread or using just a bit of all purpose flour instead of 100% all wheat flour. I think I would also add a bit more cinnamon or maybe some nutmeg as that flavor really was not as strong as I'd like. Overall a very nice quick bread. I made it into 6 lovely muffins as I only have a mini pan set of 4 (have to use all 4) so used my decorative muffin pan and adjusted the baking time down to 15 minutes and they were cooked perfectly. Thanks for sharing your recipe in Newest Zaar Tag.
