  1. Yum Yum Yum! <br/>I followed the instructions except: I used 1 1/2 small bananas; added 1/2 cup chopped walnuts; I chose "Whole wheat" setting on my bread maker because I used 1 C of bread flour 1 1/4 C of whole wheat flour. 5 hours later, we got this moist, super delicious bread everyone just loved it! <br/>Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe.
  2. Very nice bread! The texture of the crust was nice and crunchy, and the inner bread was airy and thick. Followed recipe using butter & baked on standard setting, 1-1/2 lb loaf. Not sweet, but a mild flavor. Wonder how this would be if used for a bread pudding......
  3. Also, when converting to metric, get the information right. One cup of flour is 150g, not 236 ml. 236ml is for liquid measurements only.
  4. Made this in the bread machine using olive oil, 2 bananas, & flax seeds. Very good! Moist, good crumb, & nice crust.
  5. I am going to give this 3 stars for now because the crust turned out very thick and brown. I thought I made it to the recipe only omitting the seeds. I am not sure if it is my fault or my machine's fault. I ate it this morning for breakfast and I thought it was good-tasting except for the crust problem. I am going to make it again and then I will review it again.


  1. This is a light fluffy BREAD that has banana flavour. (Not a sweet banana loaf). I added 2 medium bananas. I cup white bread flour 1 cup whole wheat bread flour 1/4 cup ground flax seeds 14 cup hemp seeds (instead of poppyseed) Super fluffy and sweet. We will definitely make this again!
  2. Just made this bread and it has a wonderful consistency and subtly sweet flavor. Used a whole very ripe banana, substituted pumpkin butter for half of the honey and omitted the poppy seeds...turned out beautifully although I did end the cycle 12 mins early because the crust seemed to be getting too dark. This might have been my own issue with setting the machine. Will definitely make this again!
  3. I agree with Kree that this bread was not what I was expecting. I used a large banana and added banana extract instead of vanilla extract and still felt that it just didn't hit the mark. It might make a nice wheat bread without the banana and poppy seeds...but just wasn't quite what I was looking for.
