    zoe,owen,andliams mommy's Note:

    This is probably one of the best banana breads that I have made. Native to the Caribbean and Central America, bananas are one of America's favorite fruits. They are rich in potassium - one banana contains 450 mg of potassium, one-fifth of the adult daily requirement - and offer a fair share of magnesium (33 mg), too. In addition, bananas help to strengthen the stomach lining and are good for soothing indigestion. Most banana bread recipes are saturated with butter and sugar. This one uses a small amount of canola oil instead - which is much better for your heart - and honey, which of course means lots of flavor. Don't use regular whole-wheat flour. It is too heavy for this recipe. Look for whole-wheat pastry flour instead

      This is by far THE best banana bread recipe BAR NONE!!! It is absolutely the easiest to make with the very few ingredients it has. Also, LOVE LOVE LOVE that it has NOT sugar in it, although both my kids can't get enough of this and it might be because I put chocolate chips in it - YUM!!! I get a lot of compliments on this recipe and I don't add the nuts. We are not nut people. I also make this gluten free with Bob's gluten free flour. I just replace the flour in equal parts! My gluten free members of the family say it's one of the best gluten free items they have every had. Try this recipe - I truly know you won't be disappointed!!!

      This is great banana bread!! It's moist and delicious; with just the right amount of sweetness, definite banana and walnut (or pecan) flavors, and a nice texture from the nuts (don't leave out the nuts--they really add a lot!). Plus, it's super easy to make...and it's incredibly healthful! I've made this recipe (as posted) a couple of times--once with larger bananas and once with smaller bananas--and the larger bananas seemed to work better (they added more moisture and flavor). For me, this is the perfect banana bread recipe and I'll always keep a copy of it in my cookbook! Thanks for sharing it, zoe,owen,andliams mommy!!
