Fantastic! Will be my go to banana bread recipe! When it’s 2-3 days old I make French toast! Yum!
Victoria 7 Nov
Turned out perfect. But I’d prefer it a little sweeter. Maybe use an extra banana next time!
Nancy S 6 Nov
Turned out great! Made these with the kids, didnt use walnuts because we sisnt have any but added chocolate chips instead. Great easy recipe. Will make again for sure!
Jackie 1 Nov
Amazing recipe! Make it again for sure!

Awesome! I subbed the yogurt for sour cream because that was all I had. I also used erythitol instead of sugar and added some 80% dark chocolate. Turned out awesome and moist.
Christina Mixon 28 Oct
delicious. very easy to make. mine needed an extra 10 mins in the oven.

Just wonderful! I've made this recipe a few times now with a few variations and the recipe has been infallible! Based on ingredients I had here, I substituted the yogurt for sour cream, added up to 2 more bananas, reduced the walnuts and added mini chocolate chips and it always came together wonderfully! FYI, my favourite combo is to make Candied Walnuts halves (butter, brown sugar on Yummly) and inset one piece into the top of each muffin as soon as they come out of the oven. Oh yes, the muffins took 20 to 22 minutes, maybe more or less depending on where you live. PS..... Fill the cupcake sleeves up to within a 1/4" of the top of the sleeve and they will mound nicely!

Sabah S. 17 Aug 2017
Did some minor changes but the bread turned up moist and full of flavor. Will definitely make it again😊

Excellent - yoghurt makes the difference!
Bobbi 26 May 2017
I finally found a fabulous banana bread recipe! It has just the right amount of banana flavor, and it is moist. Even my mother-in-law that bakes banana bread all of the time thought it was the best she has had.

Fantastic. Made the best tornado alert afternoon! I added chocolate morsels and dried bing cherries. Divine. :)
Sarah Wilson 2 Apr 2017
Making this recipe for the third time today. I have tried many banana bread recipes, including my husband's late mother's recipe whom my husband used to say made the best banana bread ever. The first time I made this recipe he said it was better than his mom's! Then he ate an entire loaf that afternoon. Good thing I make 2 at a time.
Mithila M. 20 Feb 2017
This tasted great- I added a little more yoghurt and a little less butter and it was perfect. Thank you!
Natalie C. 10 Nov 2016
Amazing-omitted the walnuts, added dark choc chips and bake in mini muffin tins. Make it once a week for my babies ;)
Formaneck 7 Sep 2016
This banana bread was moist and delicious! I would definitely make it again. - 5 star recipe, indeed!
Sigita Ž. 25 Oct 2015
This is truly amazing. I've made it so many times and I'm about to make it again. I also add chocolate chips and it tastes amazing. In my oven I need to bake it a bit longer but it's totally worth it.
Tai M. 23 Jul 2015
Very good banana bread recipe!!! My hubby is not a fan of walnuts so I omitted them and reduced the amount of butter by 1-2 table spoons. Other than that, I wouldn't change a thing:)
