I love this recipe because it uses really ripe bananas that you can catch on sale so it saves money and because Splenda works well in it. I've never tried the other national brands of artificial sweeteners, so I can't comment on how they'll work. You can also make this with regular sugar. If you do, OMIT the honey. Macadamias are very expensive, but wonderful in this recipe. Pecans and walnuts work just as well. Use either or a mixture of the two for an extra kick. Try it for breakfast with a cup of hot tea or coffee. This recipe yields 2 good size loaves so you can enjoy one now and freeze the other or pass it along to a friend.
