I used 4 bananas for this recipe and made muffins, baking for 20-25 minutes. I added walnuts, chocolate chips and raisins separately to some of the muffins and left a few plain (I liked the ones...

For me this bread was a bit dry and bland (and I was careful not to over-handle the dough). I used 4 big bananas and added 1 tsp cinnamon and some nutmeg. Next time I might add some brown sugar ...

This is a great recipe. Very flavorful and moist. I can hardly tell that there's whole wheat flour in there! Tastes great for breakfast with some peanut butter on top. I've made 6 mini loaves al...

Hard to believe there's no sugar in this recipe. The only change I would make is to add more bananas. Otherwise, it really went over well in our household. I'll definitely make this one again.

My husband really likes this bread. It is quite easy to make since there is no rise time or yeast in the recipe. I do not consider this a dessert bread since it is not very sweet. I found it ...

Absolutely love this bread!!! To alleviate any dryness, soak any nuts in a cup of warm water while preparing the rest of the recipe. This will allow them to soak up any fluid that they might lat...

I thought the bread could have been a little sweeter but overall it was good. I think I'll add raisins when I make it again and that will add the sweetness I think it needs. Just made it today...

Pretty darn good & healthy. I didn't have enough bananas so I used 1/2 cup applesauce and it was still good. Thanks for a good & healthy recipe.
