Excellent! Sweet with lots of banana flavor; we'll make this one again! I used one cup white flour and one cup wheat flour.

This was fantastic. I think this is going to be my go to recipe for banana bread. DH loved it and he's kind-of picky about low-fat breads and texture, but he liked this one. I used light margarine and egg beaters. I also used fat-free vanilla yogurt instead of plain yogurt and vanilla.

Delicious with a great banana flavour. I used brown sugar instead of white, added 2 tsp of baking powder (to get a more cakelike texture) and baked it in a bundt pan (took about 40 minutes). I didn't add any nuts as that is our preference (it also helps to keep the calories down). I served it warm topped with light cool whip and sprinkled with cinnamon. Lovely!

This is any persons banana's dream! The banana flavor was so strong it was to die for!!!! If you were to taste this bread, I don't think anyone would realize this is low fat!!!! This recipe is going into my favorite recipe cookbook! I will sure be making this often when there is old bananas sitting on the counter! Thanks for this great recipe Janet W!

Simply a wonderful recipe! I made the following changes: 2/3 c. of wheat flour, 1 1/3 c. AP flour; I Can't Believe It's Not Butter; Splenda (1:1); sour cream (I had no yogurt and couldn't wait to try!); and a 1/4 c walnut pieces. (I didn't see those listed in the ingredients.) We have dieters in the house, so low-cal is "in." I am not sure if my changes would change the nutritional facts for the better, but I would assume so. It turned out GREAT! Very moist and tasty. Thank you for sharing this recipe. It is my cookbook to stay!

I chose this recipe for Pick a Chef '06. This made a very moist bread and the whole family enjoyed it. I used vanilla yogurt and will try strawberry the next time. Great recipe; thanks for posting.

Wonderful bread! I also saw this in Cooking Light and have made it several times, but was glad to find it posted here the very same day I had a bunch of brown bananas to use up. I never seem to look at any of my cookbooks since I became addicted to Zaar LOL. Lots of banana flavor that's not weighed down by a ton of oil or butter. Moist inside, crisp outside. Doesn't taste lowfat. Used homemade lowfat yogurt with great results. Lovely sweet bread you won't feel guilty about eating or feeding to the kids. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

this is really good and i liked the fact that it has no nuts (my future sil is allergic). i used greek yogurt, and people who told me they hated bananas wolfed this down!
