    WOW, what a great banana bread recipe! It has tons of banana flavour and is moist and yummy! Mmm, everyone enjoyed it and no one would believe me that it was a lower fat, good for you version. :)<br/>I made half the recipe using a real egg and baking the dough in muffin tins, but other than that I followed your recipe to a t and it was perfect! THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this true winner with us, Lainey!<br/>Made and reviewed for Potluck Tag Game January 2011.

    I love banana bread and loved that this recipe was a lightened up version. I made the recipe exactly as written. We all enjoyed this.

    I adore the very low far and sugar content in this recipe and it tastes lovely. Mine ended up heavy and over moist. That could be because I didn't measure the banana but just used 3 banana's. When they were mashed up i thought that it looked on the generous side but used it all anyway. You get huge servings by just cutting 8 slices from a 9" loaf :D. I had 2 for my lunch and it was lots! I think I will use more cinnamon next time and measure the banana's. Made for Photo Tag.
