Mmm...so good. I omitted the white sugar, and I thought it was sweet enough. Love all the fruit and seeds!
This turned out very nicely! I subbed Splenda for the white sugar, omitted the raisins and added some mini chocolate chips instead. I made 4 mini loaves. I will be making this again!
I made this with eggs and substituted sesame seeds for the flax seeds since whole flax seed doesn't get digested. I also used half wheat germ and half ground flax so I would still get the benefit of flax. I also omitted the white sugar because of the sweetness from the banana, raisins and the brown sugar. It was plenty sweet. Last change, sorry for all the tweaks, I added 1 tsp. baking powder as the healthy ingredients used are fairly heavy so I thought it could use a bit more leavening. Adding the baking powder worked very well. This recipe is so delicious! It is a keeper in my family and one I'm proud to serve as breakfast. Thank you for posting it Eryn.
I made the vegan-unfriendly version without raisins (because I was out). This is seriously delicious banana bread. It takes the bread to a whole new level, and it really is pretty healthy for a banana bread. I love the poppy seeds, and all of the spices. The bread is nice and dark and moist. Next time, I would check it before the full hour because it was a little more "done" than I like. There will definitely be a next time. Oh, and I used whole wheat flour for the brown flour-that was what was intended?
