I really, really enjoyed this recipe. Reminded me of my Gam's banana bread! I used a different pan so it took less time, only about 40 mins. I made very minimal changes I used milk chocolate chips (all we had), no nuts, melted my butter and hand mixed it. This will be a recipe I use for years to come. Thanks for posting it!!! :)
Great recipe. I doubled it as I had some big bananas and I also used splenda for baking to cut down on the sugar..they turned out great...
This was a big hit. I too, left out the nuts and it was delicious. Yum!
