I do not recommend this recipe. Very dry and not a good taste at all.

I'm sorry to rate this so badly, but it was horrible. Perhaps you meant to specify 1 1/4 cups whole wheat OR all-purpose flour. It was WAY too dry. My husband deemed it inedible and we tossed the whole loaf after one slice. I noted how dry it was when I mixed in the flour, so I double checked all my ingredients. The only thing that could have made a difference was that my bananas were on the smaller side.

I thought this bread was FANTASTIC! I made a few loaves and shared with several friends, all who thought it was wonderful. I used all organic ingredients to suit my preferences! This is going to be my Chanukah presents this year!
