very ripe bananas, mashed
1 3/4 cups
Amazing. Just as good as any fat-filled recipe. I did make substitutions. Used whole wheat flour, splenda, conola oil and egg beaters for an even healther treat. Also added 1/2 t cinnamon for added taste. Used 2 medium loaf pans and cooked for 40-50 minutes. Is best when served room temperature and I used I Can't Believe It's Not Butter Light
I followed the reviewers suggestions and added an extra banana, 1tspn cinnamon, and used (1/3cup) brown sugar and (1/3cup) white sugar. I baked this in a loaf pan, so I had baked it about 75-80 minutes. When I took it out, the bottom was stil mushy, so I put it in the oven for another 10 minutes or so. By then the bread was just about ready (Although there was still a little bit of mushiness unfortunately... I didn't want the crust of the bread too burnt..). This bread was a little bland tasting. I could definitely taste the difference between this and regular banana bread. I much prefer regular banana bread. The loaf was quite dense and it did not rise enough in my opinion, so if I were to make it again in a loaf pan, I would add maybe a teaspoon more of baking powder. The recipe was alright, but I personally think there are better tasting banana bread recipes out there.
Baked this yesterday. I used 1/2 c yogurt instead of the 1/4 c applesauce like some of the old reviews said. Also read some reviews that said this bread was kind of bland so I added a little over a teaspoon of cinnamon.
CAME OUT GREAT! Very moist! I was afraid it'd dry out since I had to leave it in the oven longer than expected since the middle was mushy, but it came out moist and perfect.
Will definitely save this recipe and make it again.
Cut the sugar in half? YES. I cut it to 1/2 c. but it was still super-sweet. Make it 1/3 c., and use 3 smashed ripe bananas. I also used half whole-wheat flour, and sprinkled in some flax seeds for a nutty texture and omega-3's. Also cut down the vanilla to 1 t, since 1 T seemed excessive, and tossed in 1 t of cinnamon. Except for being way too sweet, I would use this recipe again.
This was sooo good! I love vanilla but 1 tablespoon is WAY too much. I reduced it to a little over a teaspoon, that is for sure a mistake in the recipe. I didn't do walnuts or choc chips but I added a big handful of fresh blueberries, and it was DELICIOUS, it disappeared quickly. Also, I used half whole wheat pastry flour. ****I make this a lot, and I've tried different things like adding a couple tablespoons of flax meal and a tablespoon of honey, and taking out some of the liquid since flax is considered a fat substitute. I really recommend it - it comes out so nicely and adds to the nutrition profile a lot.****
Very good recipe, I used an Omega Egg substitute and the recipe was still great(and cut the fat down even more). I will definitly put this one in my recipe book.
This recipe is fantastic! My roommate bragged around school and one of her teachers demanded a piece. I used vanilla yogurt instead of milk (plain works as well) to make the bread even moister. Next time I make it I'm going to add some cinnamon too.
Great tasting and moist without the high calories in other recipes.
