This is the best banana bread. It's also low in fat and calories. I was pleasantly surprised to find that it is moist and not rubbery like other low-fat baked products can be. My family raved about it. I found it from Betty Crocker's website.

really really good! using the eggbeaters and applesauce makes this recipe low fat, but i think it also makes it better! the applesauce replaces oil and makes the recipe stay moist and yummy for a long time. it also tastes lighter, meaning not so heavy, which is good. i really prefer this to regular banana bread.

Excellent! Very moist and flavorful. I used butter instead of margarine and eggs instead of eggbeaters. The recipe came together easily and baked up beautifully.

I've never made any type of bread before and I was surprised how easy this was to make. Soo moist!! My fiance and 3 yr old gobbled this up. I used low fat buttermilk but other then that I stuck to this recipe. Thanks for posting!
