    I tried this recipe and thought the bread was dry and tastless. I would not recommend this.

    This was wonderful!!! I added a little nutmeg and only baked it for 45 minutes. It came out moist and yummy.

    I saw the “dry and tasteless” review and decided to give the recipe the benefit of the doubt. I went the muffin route. I also added an extra banana and some vanilla to try to add some “taste”. The muffins toothpick tested done at 18 minutes. They smelled wonderful, but they tasted “dry” and well…”tasteless”. On another note the paper liners in my muffin pans were NOT a good idea. Half of each muffin went into the trash stuck to the paper liner. These would be okay if you really, REALLY had the taste for banana bread/muffins and wanted to go lowfat, but personally I’d rather do without than waste precious calories on them. My batch will be going to my 18 month old son…if he’ll have them!

    I love this recipe, and even better, so does my 18-year-old son. I usually add some cinnamon and fresh ground nutmeg to add even more flavor. Extra banana never hurts either.

    I tried it and it came out yummy! I also added cinnamon and vanilla extract as someone previously had done. I didn’t have egg substitute so I added 1 whole egg and 2 egg whites and I ended up chopping almonds instead of pecans because I didn’t have any. I also added 2 extra bananas to the recipe. It baked for about 50 minutes. Thanks for the recipe!! I will be telling friends about it.

    A little natural applesauce added to the mixture helps with the dryness…and be careful not to cook too long.

    So I read the previous reviews so I thought I could add a little apple juice and an extra banana an apple and some cinn and nutmeg. I also gave a little extra egg substitute so it wouldn’t be so dry. I baked it for 50mins.
    The texture was spot on. It was moist but cake like. Almost like a drier bread pudding. In my opinion the consistency was PERFECT. HOWEVER even though I added so much extra ingredients it was still too bland for me. I would give it a 4 out of ten. Not bad, but “not bad” in my opinion is not worth eating. 🙁
