After reading reviews, I made several changes to "healthy up" the recipe. My rating is for the healthy version. That being said, with how tasty mine turned out, I am SURE the full-fat, higher sugar version would be AWESOME :D I changed the following: used 1/3 cup light vanilla yogurt instead of buttermilk, 1/2 cup applesauce instead of oil, used almost 2 cups of bananas, only 1/2 cup of sugar (brown sugar that is- the bananas have enough sugar), and added 1/4 cup extra flour since the extra banana makes it stickier. I also added 1 tsp cinnamon and 1/4 tsp nutmeg. The end result had a delicious spicy banana flavor, but the spongier texture you would expect from a bread with no oil. I did a ballpark calorie count and each slice (12 slices/loaf) ended up having about 170 calories- not bad for banana bread. I shared it with some friends and they claimed they couldn't tell it was healthy. I would highly recommend these alterations if you are looking to cut fat and calories! I'd make this again for sure!
