    Made this with Whole Wheat flour and no nuts... delicious!

    I made mine with half brown sugar, half granulated, and I had 4 bananas on hand so went ahead and added it. It did overflow a bit, plus I think mine cooked a little quicker because I used a disposable loaf pan. Tasted great. The chocolate chips don't overpower the bread.

    This is a great recipe! I’ve modified it a bit, using unsalted butter (just a preference), and leaving out the extra banana and walnuts. Turned out extremely well!

    We found ourselves with a LOT of bananas so we made several different recipes. This one was definitely moist and tasty. But it was saltier than the others, and not as sweet tasting, even though it has the same amount of sugar. We liked it but it wasn’t our favorite

    I used some Greek yogurt I needed to use up instead of sour cream and it turned out great!

    Soooooo goood! Best banana bread recipe I've tried, and I've tried quite a few, including Flour's. I put nuts in half of it--only to guarantee I'll get a slice since it disappeared the first time I baked it, and the grown kids don't like nuts. What a treat!

    It IS the BEST!!! So delicious and moist. . I didn’t have quite enough sour cream so I added in some greek yogurt. This is my new favorite. 😊

    The banana bread turned out really moist and has a great flavor! I doubled the recipe and gave one to my granddaughter to take home! She loves it. I would definitely make it again! The only thing I changed was slicing only one banana instead of two! Thank you for sharing such a great recipe!! 😊

    This recipe came out awesome!! I ended up making muffins out of the batter and they came out great. Very moist and perfectly sweet. I baked the muffins at 350 degrees for 17 minutes. Enjoy!!

    According to the banana bread connoisseurs in my house, this is an excellent recipe! I will readily admit I altered it just a touch. At the last minute before I put the mixture in the loaf pan, I chose to fold in a cinnamon and brown sugar mixture... We have made it as a loaf as well as muffins, too. Two thumbs up and a YUM!!!

    I used to be a pastry chef but I now have a neurological disorder. Because of that disorder, my memory is VERY poor. So I had to make chocolate chip banana bread for my kids using others’ recipes. This time I used this recipe. My son and my husband RAVED about it and my best friend, as well. (I don’t eat carbs, but I HAD to try it just because of how much they LOVED this bread) my son tells me it’s even better than the bread I used to make when I was a chef. 😁 it really is delightful. Thank you to the creator.

    My daughter loves banana bread and this recipe is her absolute favourite! She prefers plain, so I never add nuts or chocolate chips and it still turns out so moist and flavourful. Simple and quick you can’t go wrong, give it a try you won’t be disappointed.

    This is my third time baking this recipe I do mash all the bananas because our preference is no chunks. My family and friends love it!!

    This was a huge hit at our party. I had to use Brown Rice Flour and skip the walnuts. I cooked for 60 minutes and it was extremely moist and delicious!
