    The Wallaces's Note:

    Since we live in Colorado, I am always on the lookout for high-altitude bread recipes. Much easier than worrying about conversions or hoping that a recipe designed for sea-level will turn out! This one turns out great every time! You can also add about 1/2 c of chopped nuts, dried fruit, and/or chocolate chips.

      DELICIOUS!!! Baking at altitude can be frustrating but this bread turned out perfect. We absolutely LOVED it. My mods - added 1/2 c. choco chips and a tiny splash of vanilla. Also, cooked a little longer than instructed. Anyone that has struggled with baking at high altitude MUST give this recipe a try... it's AWESOME =)

      Amazing High Altitude mix! I moved from low altitude to Vail, CO (8000ish) and NONE of the recipes worked! This is an all around favorite! Everyone asks for double chocolate chips (I use minis) and I sprinkle the nuts on top, so that even those who don't want to eat the nuts can enjoy it. Thanks!!

      It was perfect! We live in CO, and this banana bread recipe was fluffy and moist...not too rich, not too blah. Almost, almost as good as my Grandma's...but it is Grandma, and she is unique ;-) (I tried to replicate her recipe, and it turned out hard as a stone!).
