This recipe is outstanding! I made this today and used half splenda half regular sugar and splenda brown sugar blend. 2 bananas made 1 cup so added one more banana for over the top taste. I made these into muffins as they are an easy quick bite out the door, and freeze well size. Unbelievable flavor. Thank You for sharing my new go to recipe Ontario Farmwife!
