    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!

    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.

    Delish! Decreased sugar to 1/2 cup, added 1/2 cup walnuts and 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips. Only had a 5X 9 loaf pan, so baked 35 minutes instead of 50. Perfect!

    This is super easy and turns out great. It’s moist without being gummy like some banana bread recipes. It only required 50 minutes at 350. I live in Denver, didn’t make any adjustments for altitude.
