I love it! Great recipe

the recipe was really easy and simple. It took like 10 minutes to put it together and I loved how it tasted. It was like something i’d order at a restaurant, but healthier and just as good :) Definitely recommend to everyone!

I just made it. It came out so tasty! In the past when I’ve made banana bread I wanted to love it, but I never really did. This one I love! I didn’t have cinnamon (because I used the last of it this morning in oatmeal), so I made it without . It is still amazing! Love the coconut oil and maple syrup options.

Good, next time we will use the white wheat flour and chocolate chips.

loved this recipe, super simple and I already had all the ingredients! I added chopped walnuts and turned out wonderfully, looks really pretty too when it’s all done!

We are enjoying this bread. Threw in semi-sweet chocolate chips but will probably use dark or milk chocolate next time. Don’t know if it’s because I used regular flour rather than whole wheat but the flavor combination just seemed a little off to me. Took 1 hour 10 minutes to bake.

It turned out a bit too moist but everyone loved it. I am planning to use a little less coconut oil and milk on the next one.

Great recipe! Modified it a bit by adding macadamia bits and crumbs from True North pecan clusters. By far my most favorite recipe for banana bread.
Lindsey Post 25 Oct 2017
Great! I added mini dark chocolate chips instead of walnuts and it took 55mins to cook perfectly

This recipe of banana bread has become a favorite at our house. I baked one for a party yesterday and had to swear to my husband and son that I was gonna bake another for them today. That's saying something when you know they are not sweet teeth!
