I made this for my first ever batch of Banana Nut bread and it turned out pretty darn good. I made my own buttermilk using 4 1/2 tablespoons of White Vinegar and 1 cup milk and added a little cinnamon and nutmeg. It is nice and moist and tasted great.

AMAZING. . .absolutely perfect banana bread (not that I am surprised). I did change the recipe up a bit, using 1.5 cups whole wheat flour and then .5 cup cake flour to compensate. I also used 1/2 cup Splenda and the rest brown sugar. Ran out of walnuts, so I just topped it off with some oats and cinnamon/sugar before baking. My new favorite banana bread recipe, hands down!!! So flavorful and moist. THANKS for posting. UPDATE: I made this again and used applesauce in place of the oil and then made them into muffins, baking about 25 minutes and they came out like rocks. So stick to the recipe and make it into a loaf and don't sub out the oil!

It was ok, but not as moist as I'd hoped it would be

Best banana nut bread I've ever had in my entire 31 years of living here on this Earth exclamation points times a million. I underwent a slight variation transformation from the original recipe by mixing in the half a cup of walnuts and then pouring the rest of the walnuts on top. I'll be making myself a loaf of this banana nut bread for my grandma every week for the rest of my natural born life. Exclamation points times a million!!!

I'm an amatuer baker but this recipe turned out great, I brought it to Easter brunch for my family and it was gone in 20 mins (and I made 2). It was delicious and moist.

It's good, but it's missing... something. I think the texture is great, and it's quite moist, but there is just something lacking in the actual flavour. I know it isn't cinnamon because I added a bit. I'm thinking maybe a pinch more salt and adding in some butter next time might improve it. I also don't think it tastes like Starbucks banana bread. Not a deal breaker for me, since I wasn't specifically looking for the Sbux recipe, but if you're really wanting sbux banana bread I would look elsewhere. Still good, though! Just needs a little something extra.

The best ever Bananna Nut Bread! I added 1 extra Tbl buttermilk a 1/2 Tbl cinnamon and added real butter with the oil and my goodness! Was a moist bread anyway but I took it to a whole new level

I've been making this recipe for years, first thing I ever baked from scratch! I always do something fun and new. This last time I added hemp seed to kick up the protein and mineral content a little more. If no one's allergic, don't forget the nuts! Pecans are a great sub. Also, make sure to try it with chocolate chips or sub the oil for butter!

I made this recipe today and it is delicious! I didn't use any nuts and it was still amazing. Moist with a great texture. Plus, I love that everything was in my kitchen.
