This makes a big loaf! It had a nice banana flavour. I added some chopped walnuts and some flax seed. Next time I would reduce the amount of sugar to maybe half or 3/4 cup as I found it a little on the sweet side. Also, I had to bake it about 10 minutes longer than stated to get the middle fully cooked. Overall very nice recipe which I will probably make again.

I didn't have any yogurt so I used 1/3 c extra banana, plus a Tbsp of lemon juice. Tasty and not too heavy or too sweet.

I tried many banana bread recipes and this beat out every other one. It is now a family staple and we love it!

I find this recipe better than the more fattening banana breads. It stays moist which is great. Doesn't taste low fat at all.

This bread is great as is! I used light sour cream in place of the yogurt and it worked fine. Other than that, I followed the recipe to the T. Everyone loved it! Thanks Chef~V!

Love this banana bread! It is pretty easy to make and light in calories. I topped mine off with a brown sugar and cinnamon mixure before I put it in the oven. Now I have something to do with me leftover bananas!!Thanks!

I tried this recipe to use up some yogurt. It's more bland than other recipes I prefer. I added chocolate chips and walnuts, my usual favorite add-ins, but the flavor still lacked. I also used very, very (read: black) bananas, which should have helped, too. Each to his own. The texture was nice.

This was great for me. Someone had mentioned it was 1 pt. per slice for weight watchers which I have been doing since just after Thanksgiving. I used the vanilla yogurt and 1/2 c. Splenda Blend instead of sugar. Very good and very moist.
