    dahlia's Note:

    This was originally a reader recipe from Cooking Light magazine. I have tried many, many banana breads over the years (from healthy to unhealthy versions) and this remains my favorite. It's very easy to make and also freezes very well.

      For being a healthy banana bread I'd have to say that this was pretty good. It definitely tastes the best warm. It came out fairly moist. It just lacked could have been sweeter; though I DO have a big sweet tooth! To make this recipe five stars I would suggest adding maybe some walnuts to the bread? I personally added a glaze to it using: - 1 cup powered sugar - 2 Tablespoons low fat milk - 1 tsp. vanilla Stir over med. heat w/ a whisk and put a little on the banana bread! That made this recipe delish!
