This is a keeper. Thanks for the recipe, Marlitt. You can make it even more healthy by substituting unsweetened applesauce for the butter, dropping the calories per serving down to around 200 calories.

This recipe turned out wonderful! Just as moist and flavorful as a regular banana bread recipe. Will definitely use this as my regular banana bread recipe.

This was delicious and moist, though I did make a few adjustments to make it more healthy. I used all whole wheat flour, replaced the butter with 1/2 c. flaxseed meal and 1/2 c. unsweetened applesauce, and I used 1/3 c. honey in place of the brown sugar. And I made them into muffins... (baked at 375 for 20 minutes and came out with 16 muffins) half with pecans and half without for my kids--who absolutely loved them. I think the yogurt made them extra moist. Thanks!

Delicious banana bread! I made exactly as directed except that I left out the chocolate chips, nuts and raisins, as I was in the mood for just a plain banana bread. I also didn't have buttermilk on hand so I used the lemon juice and milk trick. I really like the healthy addition of the whole wheat flour, my little ones gobbled this right up! Super moist and yummy as a banana bread should be. Looking forward to making with the chocolate chips! Will definitely be making good use of this recipe, it's a keeper! I can see why your kids still ask for it! Thanks so much Marlitt!

I went all whole wheat flour and added some flax seed for extra fiber. Definitely moist and very yummy.

I made this last night for the first time, I was pleasantly surprised to find that my husband did not even notice the whole wheat flour. He though it was great.

My College boys loved this one too! I wasn't sure about whether the brown sugar need to be packed or not so I just lightly packed it. I used yogart which gave a light texture. Also added 1Tbl of ground Flax seed - really good for you!

This was very good, I used applesauce instead of the butter and used splenda brown sugar blend for regular brown sugar, It didnt have to cook as long as I thought, about 45 min, it turned out great. Thanks!

Absolutely fantastic banana bread! I made this exactly as directed. I opted for the chocolate chips (couldn't resist) & walnuts - but did not use the raisins. The result was an incredibly moist and delicious banana bread. You cannot tell that it is made with whole wheat flour. Other notes: I made sure the butter was softened before mixing with the sugar. I ended up using 4 small bananas. If you're searching for a banana bread, you really should give this one a try. The bonus is that it's healthier for you, too!
