This recipe is super easy to make, it takes no time to prepare!!! For best results use banana's that have been frozen and thawed out, they add a lot more moisture to the bread.Or if you want to use fresh banana's, add more applesauce for moisture.*Recipe has been updated thanks to review*

I didn't have much luck with this recipe. I made as directed other than substituting walnuts for the pecans. I found the applesauce was essential, otherwise there would have not been any liquid to mix in. The batter was very stiff even then. I elected to bake in small foil cupcake pans so I could freeze the banana bread for future lunches. I ended up with 10 individual mini loaves. The bread was very dense and not sweet at all. This bread might be a good option for those seeking a very low fat option. Made for Spring '08 Pick A Chef.
I think something was missing, maybe oil, butter or applesauce. It was hard to mix so I added a little bit of applesauce and milk. Maybe a little bit of vanilla would be good. Made for PAC Fall 2007
