WOW, what a great banana bread recipe! It has tons of banana flavour and is moist and yummy! Mmm, everyone enjoyed it and no one would believe me that it was a lower fat, good for you version. :)
I made half the recipe using a real egg and baking the dough in muffin tins, but other than that I followed your recipe to a t and it was perfect! THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this true winner with us, Lainey!
