    I made this recipe as directed, even with the lemon juice, and it turned out to be the best banana bread I’ve ever made! I added a handful of chocolate chips and baked for 65 minutes because I have an older oven, but wow! Absolutely delicious!

    Light and fluffy as promised. Family loved it! The fresh lemon juice was the catalyst to the flaky texture. Plant butter was substituted without giving up any taste.

    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!

    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.

    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
