Very easy and very good - will definitely make this recipe again. It's lighter than more traditional recipes both in texture and in calories. I made a few adjustments based on previous reviews: I used low-fat Bisquick; I used brown sugar instead of white sugar; and I reduced the sugar to 3/4 cup because I increased the bananas to 1 3/4 cup (4 bananas).

It tastes great my family loved it but i would suggest using this as either a double batch or banana bars because after only 15 minutes in the oven i checked it and had to totally clean my oven it boils over everywhere!!! Read More

This turned out so great and was SO easy! I doubled the recipe and it disappeared. I used half brown/half white sugar as I didn't have enough white and it was wonderful. Making it again tonight! Read More

I made these with Gluten Free Bisquick and HOLY COW were they ever good! Warm right out of the oven I think I like them even better than the old fashioned banana bread recipe I used to make. They are lighter in texture and have a more noticiable banana flavor. I did make a few changes... I went heavy on the vanilla added a few dashes of pumpkin pie spice (because I love it) and a splash of rum flavoring - all of which were holdovers from my original banana bread recipe. I also made muffins instead of a loaf (because that allows for better portion control in my family) so I adjusted the bake time down to about 15-20 min. Overall easy tasty and fantastic!:-D Thanks for sharing! Read More

I have made many "from scratch" banana breads but this recipe beat them all in my house. The bread was great. Added cinnamon and nutmeg but that was the only alteration. Also-remember that bisquick rises!! Don't fill your pan/s very high!! Read More

This recipe is so Awesome. My family and I have never really cared for banana bread so when I found myself with 6 overly ripe bananas I didn't know what to do with them. So I thought I would make bread and take it to work. I substituted the walnuts with chocolate chips and withing 20 min. out of the oven the bread was half gone! My husband his friend and our son devoured over half the bread in one sitting! Now..they are hoping the bananas will get too ripe to eat so I can make the bread again! Many thanks! Read More
