Wonderful Banana Bread

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by goaliechik

I recently made another banana bread recipe here on recipezaar that I thought was the best banana bread recipe ever (See Banana Banana Bread by Shelley Albeluhn). For dietary reasons, I needed to cut back on the sugar and fat. So, I thought I'd share my recipe since it turned out really well for me.

I am writing this review as I am eating this wonderful bread. My daughter helped me make it, (she is 2) and is on her second piece!! I changed a couple things - I used all butter bc I did not have apple sauce and all flour bc I do not believe in wheat bran in y banana bread. The crust is so good and crunchy and the inside is a moist deliciousness I've never eaten before in a banana bread. I will never make a different recipe again. Bravo!! And thank you!!
