    Perfection! I added mini chocolate chips and chopped walnuts. I also doubled the recipe and was able to make a loaf and 6 muffins.

    This is the recipe I always use. It's moist and very tasty. I generally make 2 loaves at a time because this family of 4 devours them in about 3 days. Try toasted with a tad of butter. Yummy!!

    I’ve tried dozens of banana bread recipes and there was always something wrong from taste to dryness. This is the first one that did not fail me. The taste, the moistness, texture, it has it all. This banana bread lasted about five minutes from the first piece to the last. My family went for seconds and thirds till it was gone.

    I’ve made banana bread many times, always using a different recipe each time. Today I found my recipe, the search is over. Very moist, cooked for 50 min at 350*. Used 1/2c of sugar and it was plenty sweet.

    Tasty, and moist😋 I sprinkled a little cinnamon in the batter and it was perfect. Next time I’ll try adding some chocolate to the batter and see how that goes😁 I also baked it in a muffin pan and it only took about 19 mins t fully cook. Overall would recommend if u need a good use for leftover bananas😋
    Great just like the pictures however it does seem to be a smaller amount of dough than other recipes but in the end it did not matter my bread I’d fantastic!

    I have made this recipe more times than I can count, and it turns out perfect every single time. I use 1/2 cup sugar. Once out of the oven, the loaf doesn’t last long in my house. It’s a great recipe. Thank you to whoever posted it :)

    Excellent, kids loved them and super easy. I made this recipe into muffins instead of bread (kids didnt want to wait an hour), made a dozen muffins cooked for 20 minsutes @ 350- perfect!

    Fantastic and easy. I used brown sugar instead of white and added 1/2 cup of blueberries! Yum!

    Easy recipe! I added ½ cup of chocolate chips & ½ cup of chopped walnuts. I did have to bake this longer than 60 minutes, about 15-20 minutes longer, as it needed to cook in the middle of the loaf. It turned out really well. It’s very light, not super dense like most banana breads. Will make this again!!

    It was really good! But maybe bake for 40-45 min instead of 50 because mine is a little dry and rough on the edges, but still very good!

    My go to recipe for banana bread! I add 1/2 cup of chocolate chips into the mix, and then sprinkle turbinado sugar on top once poured into the pan and it’s the most easy and declious dessert. My boyfriend absolutely loves it.
