This recipe is what has been used in my family since I was old enough to eat banana bread. It tastes really good! I like to add vanilla, cinnamon and/or nutmeg to mine.

After trying several, I came across this recipe and haven't gone for a different one since. I usually use SmartBalance instead of butter, and use the recommended spices. Sometimes I also sweeten it up with chocolate chips.

I made this without any other the suggested spice additions.......I only noticed those after it was in the oven! Anyhow, this was delicious, a lovely texture and very simple to make. Thanks for the recipe!
