I made this banana bread and couldn't believe how great it tasted! It doesn't even have sugar, eggs or butter! If you're looking for a healthy, low fat vegan loaf this is the right recipe to look at!

It was a little bland but I think it depends how ripe the bananas are. I was able to fix it by adding some Earth's balance butter and drizzling agave on it while it was still warm...made it perfect plus I added cinnamon to the mix which made a difference. So next time I will add more cinnamon, definitely needs a little salt and more raisins and/or a little raw sugar. Good healthy recipe.

Very, very plain -- and I'm used to milder, bland-to-most-people kind of food. It was moist, yes, and has a great texture. I should followed my instinct to add more bananas and something else to add flavor. I did use applesauce & maple syrup to replace the apple juice. FYI, apple juice (unless *not* from concentrate) is basically flavored sugar.

I made a double batch and have 6 mini loafs. They will be fine for breakfast toast with a little peanut butter on the the side of my eggs.

This was very moist, I tasted it right out of the oven. I used half whole wheat/half almond flour. flaxseed oil for the cooking oil, I didn't have apple juice so I used unsweetened apple sauce and added a tablespoon of agave sweetener. I love healthy food and eating this made me feel good.
