Great recipe. I actually found it on bhg.com and was going to type it up here when I found this. I substituted sugar with the same amount of brown sugar (no health benefits, just what I had) and it added a nice, caramel-y dimension to the recipe. I also sprinkled the top with chopped walnuts before baking. Came out fantastic! Thanks for adding this recipe.

Used the 3/4 cup of splenda and it almost glued my teeth together, I also subsituted the oil with the apple sauce. I should have taken Barb's advise and just use 1/4 cup of splenda. Will try the next time. I liked the texture of it, didnt have no cinnamon and will certainly try that next time too.

I LOVE banana bread, but it's not very Weight Watchers friendly, which the diet of choice for my husband and I. This recipe was a great base, but I used whole wheat flour, used only 2 Tbls. of oil and instead upped the banana to 1 1/2 cups, I used Splenda (the full 3/4 cup) and I also added 2 tsp of vanilla. I knocked this recipe down to 100 cal. per serving, upped the fiber and for those familiar with WW made it a two point snack! It tasted great!!!

I made this recipe into muffins today and they are GREAT!! I am trying to eat low Cal and these are great for that. I used whole wheat flour, applesauce instead of oil, Splenda (a little more than 1/3 cup), and added some nutmeg and vanilla. They came out nice and moist. My Kids loved them too! They figured out to be about 85 Calories per muffin!! Great for breakfast or a snack!! Thanks for the great Recipe!!

very good! substituted oil for strong, brewed coffee, used whole wheat flour, and reduced sugar to 1/3 cup - turned out great! added a chocolate-coffee glaze on top for a little extra sweetness!

This was a really good recipe! I used whole wheat pastry flour, applesauce instead of the oil, 1/2 cup packed brown sugar and added a 1/2 cup blueberries. The recipe makes exactly 12 perfectly-sized muffins.

This is my favorite banana bread recipes. It's very easy to make and it's delicious. I subsitute 1/4 applesause for the oil, I used brown sugar and add 1/2 of nutmeg. Wonderful. My co-workers and family LOVE it.

I used unbleached wheat flour and added 1/2 C of wheat bran and 1/4 tspn of nutmeg to the dry ingredients. I also added 1 Tspn of vanilla into the wet ingredients. I used one whole egg instead of the 2 egg whites called for and I added 1 C of blueberries (I dusted these with flour before I added them to the batter)at the very end and folded them into the batter. I made a topping (1/3 C brown sugar, 2 Tbspn flour, 2 Tbspn whole oats, 1/4 tspn cinnamon, 1 Tbspn butter) baked them in cupcakes. My kids and husband loved them. I had to make another double batch immediately as there were none left for breakfast tomorrow. Thank you for the lovely recipe.

I added chocolate chips and a tablespoon of yogurt. I dropped the oil, added a tablespoon of butter and 3 tablespoons of applesauce. My oven is messed up so I had to make it in preheat. It was really dense and a little gooey (probably from my applesauce experimentation and a faulty oven) but wow! Even so its very yummy and filling. Thank you so much. It would have been interesting to add a little honey and sprinkle oatmeal streusal on top. I will try again, thank you!
