    I have done this recipe many times because it is easy and you really can’t mess it up I put some nutmeg in this time

    Very good. Burned a bit in my oven and hard to get the time exactly right, but otherwise delicious

    Comes out great, I always add 1 cup of semisweet choco chips. Best way to use up overly-ripe bananas.

    Turned out nice. I did use whole wheat flour and added 1/2 cup apple sauce. I also added mini chocolate chips since my hubby only eats banana bread if it involves some kind of chocolate. Ha ha!

    I love this recipe. However, I used erythritol instead of sugar to eliminate the glycine issue and only used 1/4 cup and then added a 1/4 cup of flaked coconut and a 1/2 cup of walnuts I also, on a lark, added 1/2 tsp. of caramel flavoring and it had a subtle effect that was kind of a creamy aftertaste (for lack of a better phrase) I like my banana bread less sweet and this was perfect.
    i cut the sugar in half (just personal preference) and added an extra banana. also just a pinch of nutmeg. this recipe is a perfect base recipe. it turned out wonderfully!

    Irs a great recipe... Easy to make and great for a milk-free option! The butter is ok because our bodies process it differently thank milk. You can also make this a gluten-free recipe also by using rice/tapioca flour mixture. The ratio is the same.

    This by far is the best banana bread recipe ever. It smelled like banana pudding while cooking.

    It was ok. Pretty boring. Missing something. I’ll try to figure it out what it is and modify.

    very good! i didn't use lemon juice because i didn't have any, but everyone loved it! whole loaf was gone within an hour!

    Good! I opted out for the lemon juice though. One part was a little musby but i think thats from the bananas

    Soooo good. I cut the sugar to 1/2 cup and had to bake mine for 1 hr. Still moist. Amazing

    I substituted 1/4 cup of the sugar with brown sugar and added 3/4 cup walnuts. Delicious!

    It was so moist and flavorful, just like how my Granny used to make it! 😍 Baking this bread brought back so many memories when it's scent filled my entire house one morning. Since then, it's become my favorite go-to snack, and pretty much a weekly staple. Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful recipe!

    Awesome! Rave reviews from my family. I added semisweet chocolate chips and baked just a tiny bit longer (could be my oven).

    It was awesome! But instead of 50 minutes, I left it around an hour. Because it kept coming out stick. But it was still delicious!!!

    Lovely recipe. Comes out great every single time and is as simple as it can get. Just love it. Adding a few nuts or chocolate chips makes it even more yummy.
