Absolutely delicious! I added some cinnamon and vanilla, left out the nuts and added some coconut to half. Best banana bread I've ever had!

My husband loved this bread. He thought it was a perfect balance of sweetness. I used 2 cups of frozen blueberries and left the nuts out. The bread baked beautifully, and I froze the left overs for a quick breakfast out of the toaster.
