  1. Great recipe! I added 1/4c of flax seed meal. Next time I will increase the banana and the optional ingredients... I might add some nutmeg too. Thank you for posting!
  2. Very good! I used turbinato sugar instead of brown because that is what I had on hand. I think perhaps I'll use a little more banana to make it more moist next time. I added raisins and it was a nice sweet touch. A delicious recipe. I will make again.
  3. This is a gastronomic taste sensation for the senses, a wonderful and very satisfying banana bread that is not to sweet and I thoroughly enjoyed. I followed the recipe as written and simply substituted splenda brown sugar blend and eggbeaters to account for a strict cardiac diet. I also used Whole Wheat Graham Flour. I chose to use sliced almonds for the nuts and raisins and this will become my new recipe for banana bread. Thanks for sharing!
  4. This is definitely not like any other banana bread I've tasted, but what the hey ~ New experiences, new delights, & THIE BREAD IS CERTAINLY A DELIGHTMENT! I included all the ingredients & thoroughly enjoyed the addition of the nuts & fruits, as well as the use here of whole wheat flour! Will definitely make this one again!

Currently I am a student... in waiting... if your wondering what i mean by that, well long story short, I can't start college until the fall semester. I will be doing some gen eds at Mesa Community College for two semesters and then moving on to wonderful ASU to study Industrial Design. I can't wait! Since I am jobless right now I cook allllll day. I probably sound like a looser but I enjoy trying out new recipes.
