Moist and delicious. Very quick and easy as well. I used 1 cup whole wheat and 1/2 cup a/p flour. 2 tablespoon olive oil instead of butter, 1 whole egg instead of 2 egg whites, and topped it with brown sugar and cinnamon. Will be making again. Thank you.

SO fantastic!! I've only used my family recipe for years but this is awesome and I'll use it instead! I used all whole wheat flour, applesauce instead of margarine, 2 whole eggs and added cinnamon and vanilla. Perfect! Thank you so much for sharing such a fabulous (healthy) recipe!

This is amazing! I used to make banana bread with heavy cream and a lot of sugar, but since switching to healthier eating habits, I gave it up completely. This definitely takes the old recipe's place. I followed other readers' suggestions and added cinnamon and vanilla, and I used 1 cup whole wheat and 1/2 cup a/p flour. I used honey instead of sugar and cut it down to 1/4 cup. I am passing this recipe on to all my friends. Thanks so much for this one!

BEST recipe I have tried so far. Made 12 muffins in a dark pan at 325 for 20-25 min. Very tender and flavorful I changed a few things...all whole wheat pastry flour, a little less than 1/2 cup turbinato sugar, replaced the butter with 6 Tbl ground flax meal and added 1 Tbl hot water. I also added 1/4 tsp. nutmeg, 1/2 tsp cinnamon (per others suggestions). Added walnuts to half at the request of my husband. I sprinkled the tops with some cinnamon and brown sugar before baking - my kids like topping on their muffins. I like that only egg whites are used. I could not believe how great these tasted. I have tried numerous recipes in search of one that had great taste and texture that I could make using all whole wheat pastry flour and ground flaxseed meal. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe!

Delicious. Used 5 overripe bananas and 3 T. of applesauce instead of the butter. The muffins were very sweet from the bananas so next time I might cut back the sugar just a bit.

This is so good! I added 1tsp vanilla, 1/2tsp of cinnamon and used 1tbls of unsweetened applesauce and 1 tbls margarine instead of two. Next time I will use 2tbls applesauce and no butter. Very delicious!

This was great, really moist and yummy! Will definetly be making again. I used 2 whole eggs, since I didn't want to be stuck with 2 yolks and didn't want to waste them and it was still great. Mmm kids loved it too!

What a healthy alternative to the usual banana bread! This will now be "my" bread! I couldn't resist and added 1/2 tsp cinnamon, 1/4 tsp nutmeg and 1 tsp vanilla to the batter. Mine baked for 40 minutes- delicious thank you!

Excellent! This tasted like it didn't even have whole wheat flour in it, DH didn't even know. Next time I may try using the splenda and soy flour instead of all purpose flour as another reviewer did. Thanks for this recipe!
