"This wonderfully flavorful banana bread is a real crowd pleaser! It's sweetened with molasses instead of sugar. What a nice variation!"

I loved this bread but made two changes to the recipe: I used only 1/2 C of molasses and I used spelt flour instead of whole wheat flour. Delicious and healthy too!

I was extremely skeptical about trying this recipe because of the molasses. Am I ever glad I did. It is truly moist and delcious. I will be making this often!

This bread is excellant and very moist, but should be called Molasses Bread as you can't taste the bananas. Takes 4 bananas to make 2 cups. Couldn't believe how easy it was to make

This recipe is great! I used blackstrap mollasses, so I cut it down to 1/2 a cup, and used four large bananas. It was moist and sweet, my family ate it in one sitting. I know not everyone li...

This bread was very tasty and exceptionally moist. I think it's the best bannana bread recipe that I've ever tried.

My kids weren't hip to the molasses. Guy at work, who loves molasses, liked it. Too molasses-y for my family but it was nice to try.

This recipie will make a very dark, moist, dense loaf. I'd suggest slicing it up and serving it as a winter desert alternative to fruitcake.
