    What's Cooking?'s Note:

    Moist and delicious banana bread that doesn't taste low-fat! A healthier way to prepare an old favorite. This recipe makes two large loaves. Freezes well. I recommend using a blender or food processor to chop the walnuts (they should still be a little chunky, not quite as fine as sand) as well as to mash the bananas (puree until there are still a few small chunks left).

      Great banana bread. I halved the recipe and made just one loaf. I used a half whole wheat/half white flour and since there is honey (another sweetener) I used splenda for the sugar. This took the full baking time and was a dense lovely loaf of banana and nutty goodness. (Oh, and I used pecans because we were out of walnuts.)

      Great recipe. I made this today & my husband & I both like it very much. It went together easily and has a great taste. I'm not usually a fan of banana (anything) but I do like this.
