This is a great moist bread, and I was excited to find a way to use up some bananas and grated carrots that I had in the freezer. I left out the nuts because I didn't have any- sprinkled some raw sugar on top before putting the loaf pan in the oven to bake (mine took about 70minutes).

Very moist and flavorful, and rose up nicely. I cut the sugar to 3/4 cup and may try 1/2 cup next time. Perfect blend of spices. I had a slice with a scoop of vanilla non-fat, no sugar added ice cream for dessert. Yummy. Made for Fall 2011 PAC game.

This is one of the best quick bread I made. It's perfect. The texture and taste. I used 3/4 cup sugar but next time I'll try with 1/2 cup. I'm sure it would be sweet enough for our taste. I used only cinnamon (no nutmeg) so I used 1 tsp of cinnamon. I used 3 bananas. After 65 minutes, it was not cooked through. So I added 20 minutes and it was perfect. Thanks Paula :) Made for the Australian Recipe swap for November 2010

Excellent recipe! The bread was moist yet firm, and had a wonderful mix of banana sweetness and carrot moistness. I followed another reviewer's suggestion and used half whole wheat flour and half brown sugar and it worked out wonderfully. I left out the nuts since I was making this for my preschooler and toddler. 8 mini loaves took 40 minutes to bake.

Quick and easy (and a great way to use up those extra bananas that accumulate). I wanted to have this for breakfast so I made a few changes--I used 1/2 c brown sugar, half wheat flour, subbed walnuts for pecans and used 3 bananas. I didn't bother mashing the bananas beforehand, I just tossed them into the mixer. This is a good quick bread, thanks for sharing.

Mmmmmmm......This is very, very good! I happened to have a ton of carrots and bananas on hand and was hoping to find a recipe that included them both - how lucky I was! Very moist - I did double the recipe - I also cut the sugar by about 1/4 cup and used 1/2 brown sugar - 1/2 white sugar. Next time I'll sub 1/2 applesauce for the oil. Doubling the recipe gave m two loaves (not totally full loaves) and 12 muffins.

I doubled it and added a grated green apple. My kids helped and they love it. It made two loaves. I'm hiding the second one so my husband and I can enjoy some tomorrow.

This is the best banana bread I have made so far. It is really moist and the addition of carrot make it different from the other banana bread. I double the recipe and use 1 jar of apple baby food to replace some of the oil, use 1/2 whole wheat pastry flour, reduce the sugar by a quarter and omit the nuts because my son don't like nuts. It still turn out super with all this changes.

I can't stop eating this. It's better the second day, too. I used egg and sugar subs. Next time, I will try subbing some of the oil with applesauce. Thanks for an excellent recipe.
