javascript:postComment(); It would only seem proper to give credit to Isa Chandra Moskowitz for creating this recipe. I own several of her cookbooks and her recipes are spot on.

I chose this because we were out of eggs. It's delicious! I used rice milk instead of soy, and accidentally left out the vanilla. I will probably cut back on the sugar a little bit next time.

This recipe is excellent! Before I popped it in the oven I sprinkled some sugar over the top and it gave it a nice sparkly crust. Thanks for posting!

Wonderful banana bread... very dense and moist. I added about 3/4 cup chopped pecans (just personal preference) and otherwise followed the recipe exactly. This will be my go-to banana bread recipe from hereon out! Thanks for posting.

HOW COME THERE'S NO RECENT REVIEWS ON THIS BREAD?! It's AMAZING! Sorry for shouting, that's honestly how excited I am about this recipe. I went vegan about a month and a half ago, and I just now realized how much I would miss making my banana bread, and pumpkin bread, you name it. I haven't given much thought to the possibility of being able to make your own vegan bread from home. I only thought about buying it in a grocery store (if I could find a vegan variety) but... what would be the fun in that? I LOVE to bake, and as soon as I saw this recipe I knew that I at least had to give it a try, and boy, am I GLAD that I did! This banana bread is so, freaking moist that I didn't even need to spread it with vegan butter! (...Even though I did end up spreading one piece with it, out of sheer habit, but it doesn't need it at ALL) I cut up a slice for my aunt to try and she nearly collapsed when I told her that it was vegan! The look on her face was priceless! She said, and I quote (for all of you non vegans out there :) "If you didn't tell me that this was vegan, I would have never known. This is OUTSTANDING!" And then she carried on about it for like five more minutes, and I'm standing there like *I really want to go so I can have some more myself...* All in all this is my first time making this recipe, like I stated previously, but it most certainly will NOT be my last! Well done! This will be my go to from now on for banana bread. SIDE NOTE!: I did make SLIGHT modifications. Very reasonable ones. I used almond milk instead of soy, and I used more cinnamon instead of allspice. It came out wonderfully! -Xoxo Erika

This is by far the Best banana bread I have ever made! I was out of eggs and did not feel like leaving home. I added milk chocolate chips. My son agreed....THE BEST!

I thought he flavor of this loaf was perfect. I added 1/2 cup walnuts, but otherwise kept exactly to the recipe. It's very moist and dense, maybe just a tad to much for me. I like a little more fluffiness in my BB. I will keep this on hand though, and maybe play with it a touch. Mine also was VERY done at 50 minutes, so I suggest checking on it!

Fantastic! I used 1/2 all purpose flour and 1/2 whole wheat flour and doubled the recipe. Thanks for posting :)
