I started with a recipes from Fat Free Baking & changed it a little. It is good for a breakfast bread, but you need to be careful that it doesn't get dried out.

This recipe was really, really good! YUM! It had an intense banana honey taste with just a hint of malt from the brown sugar. We loved it! As my bananas were really sweet I reduced the honey and sugar quite a bit and that worked out lovely. Although I, too, had to add quite a bit more milk to the dough, my bread was very moist in the end and Ill certainly keep this recipe handy.
THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing a keeper with us, Lily!

This was nice but I did have to add quite a bit more milk than asked for...I used about 3/4 cup just so I could actually mix it. I used Splenda in place of sugar and self -raising flour so left out the baking agents. It was okay to eat but very dry so I ended up toasting it ans serving with cream cheese. I think this would be better with just a tad bit oil or butter or perhaps even applesauce to give a bit more moistness.

I'm nut usually big on banana bread unless it's dressed up somehow, but I think the use of whole wheat flour & the honey (used a very dark, flavorful one here) has changed my mind ~ Your recipe makes for A GREAT TASTING BREAD, & I really enjoyed the hint of pumpkin from the pie spice! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed in Healthy Choices ABC tag]
