This is a moist, delicious banana bread i have been baking for a long time. I like to make large banana muffins to take to work. By making muffins, you can add walnuts to some and not others. Enjoy!!

I have made this recipe countless times, and it always turns out great. I have subbed plain yogurt, or 1/2c skim milk with a teaspoon of lemon juice for the sour cream, and it works fine. I even realized someone had eaten my bananas after I had already started making this, so I subbed 1c unsweetened applesauce and 1t cinnamon- it was delicious! Thank you for posting!

Very nice. I like the oil over the butter as it turns out with a nice crumb this way. Thank you for posting!---- Edit over two months later---- I started to make this tonight, as I have a ton of bananas which are turning. I'M ALMOST OUT OF S.C- SOOO I used yogurt cups, (sugar free fat free) and flavoured (strawberry and peach)- and it was REALLY good. Not as 'brisk' as s.c. but still tasty. I subbed about 1/4 cup of the s.c. for yogurt.

Delicious! I just finished baking the bread and it turned out so yummy. I sprinkled the pans with cinnamon and sugar after spraying with pam and it added a nice texture and flavor, but
it would have been just great without it. This will be my go to recipe for banana bread from now on.
