This banana bread is awesome! I used 1/2 cup flax seed meal, 1/2 cup of whole oats (ground up in the food processor) and 1 cup of whole wheat flour. I added more walnuts (3/4 cup), used 1 tablespoon of olive oil & added an extra egg (for more protein). And used 1 tablespoonful of vanilla. I love this recipe!

This was really good and moist. For me it took a lot longer than 30 minutes to cook though, closer to 50. I did not use walnuts, but added about 1/4 c of miniature chocolate chips. I also used skim milk as opposed to the almond milk.

I was looking for a healthy banana bread recipe to replace my Betty Crocker one, and this is it! I was suspicious with such a low amount of fat and it being from olive oil, but this turned out perfect. No oat bran, so I used a smaller quantity of wheat germ and added a little more flour. Added some Mixed Sweet Spice too. Perfect!

Yummy!!! We made these into muffins (the recipe made 15 regular size muffins) and baked at 350 for 16 minutes. We left out the walnuts (personal preference), used 1% cow milk (what we had on hand) and added tiny semi-sweet chocolate chips. They are wonderful hot out of the oven, and make a perfect breakfast or snack. Thanks, Terry!!

Excellent! Very good bread - great texture and flavor and very healthy! I even substituted 1 c. almond flour (ground up almond pulp) for 1c. of the whole wheat flour and it worked perfectly! Will definitely be making this again.

This was a good banana bread. Nice and hearty. I used rice milk, because it is sweet, and used pecans, because I didn't have any walnuts. Will definately make again. Thank you for sharing.

I made these into muffins. The texture was good. I would have liked for this to be a bit sweeter. I did add 2 Tbsp. ground flax seed, used dairy milk, and left out the walnuts.
