    Great! I did not add the yogurt, yet it still came out moist and delicious.

    Yes, it is wonderful. It will make one 9 inch pan and a smaller 8” in pan. I had to use peach yogurt, but it still came out great!

    It rose a little higher than expected, maybe too much batter in the pan? May modify a little next time. It tasted great!

    We loved it!! It turned out perfect. After the initial 55 minutes, I lowered the temperature to 325, covered it in tinfoil and cooked it an additional 15 minutes.

    Bread baked up nice, stored and sliced well. I used 1 cup of chopped pecans in place of the walnuts and Swerve granulated sweetener instead of the sugar. Although the flavor was good I do think it could have benefitted from a touch of cinnamon which I will add the next time. Overall very nice recipe that I will make again.

    Very easy to bake. unfortunately I didn't have walnuts, so I did without them. result was pretty good, ans beautiful too. I was very happy with it 😁

    Dee-lish! Used pecans instead of walnuts because I burned those while toasting because I misread "preheating oven", and took it to mean "preheated oven".

    Delicious. I made it exactly as directed first time so the second time I experimented by adding a bit of cinnamon and a little brown sugar. We shall see!

    I didn't use the walnuts because I didn't have any on hand, but this was one of the best banana breads I've ever made. Moist on the inside and just slightly crunch on the outside. It has a nice crust to it. I will be making this again.

    I used 4 bananas, a stick of butter, 1/2 cup sugar, 1/4 cup of chocolate chips. No nuts! The yogurt really helps. First time I tried that.

    Just made it with few changes and it turned out perfect and delicious! I’m eating it right now as I’m writing this review lol. My changes are (one is intentional and the other is not): I substituted regular sugar with brown (same amount) as I didn’t want it to be very sweet, and had to use bleached flour since I mistakenly bought it instead of unbleached kind. Also I baked it 10 min more as after 55 min as directed by the recipe it seemed to be still very moist and my wooden stick didn’t come out clean. I don’t think my changes affected too much of the quality and taste of this bread - it is absolutely delicious not very sweet came out of pan super easy smells great and looks very appetizing. Definitely will make it again.
