I was planning to bake several different banana breads to try a variety. But I made this one first and it was exactly what I wanted for peanut butter sandwiches (not so sweet or wet) so I made extra of this. It's not the classic banana bread. It's better!

This recipe is awful. I wasted my time and money for the ingredients.

I thought this bread was wonderful! My family loved it as well. I did use 4 bananas instead of 3. Very yummy toasted with peanut butter!

I had to mess with this recipe a bit. Looking at it, I couldn't see how the poor recipe was able to rise without leavening. And, it had too much liquid. I used butter because I happened to be out of vegetable oil, added a tsp. each of baking soda and baking powder, eliminated the maple syrup and added a 1/2 tsp. of Mapleine and a half cup of sugar for a slight sweetness. Only nuts I had was pecans, so I used those. Smells great and baked up beautifully. NOTE: This made one large banana bread.

All right. I added baking powder and it still didn't rise as much as I would have liked. Also used more banana. If there's a way to combine this recipe's whole wheat wholesomeness with the idea behind the "Almost No Fat Banana Bread" recipe on this site, I'd be in heaven.

I loved, loved, loved this recipe!! I did use white flour because I didn't have any wheat flour on hand, but I didn't change a single thing otherwise. The banana bread came out PERFECT! it was just sweet enough, had a perfect consistancy, and rose wonderfully! It is probably one of the BEST banana bread recipes I have gotten from this site.

This isn't an overly sweet, cakey bread which i like. I did add baking soda and baking powder and it rose nicely. Also I just whipped the whole eggs and added them. All in all a nice, healthy bread

This recipe was good, and had great texture. I was shocked that even without any soda or powder, it rose! It's definitely not your typical banana bread though: it's not very sweet at all, and has an almost yeast bread consistency.
