I have been using this recipe for years now. It's delicious the way it is but I do occasionally change it up a little to make it healthier. I made it tonight and used whole wheat flour instead of all purpose and used canola oil as the "cooking oil" called for. It's still delicious and has a little more texture to it due to the WW flour. 5 stars from me!

I used this recipe it is so good ! I added 1 sliced apple, 1/2 cup frozen thawed blueberries-( coated with a sprinkle of sugar and flour to hold their shape), 4 mashed bananas, 1/2 cup white sugar, 1/2 cup brown sugar. 1/2 tsp almond extract, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, and 1/8 tsp pumpkin pie spice ( I was out of nutmeg) and used 1/2 cup oil. Baked at 350 degrees for 70 minutes then I wrapped it foil while still warm and sliced it in the morning.

This recipe is PERFECT as-is! I have been using this recipe for a long time. The key is letting it sit overnight wrapped in foil before slicing. This makes it so moist. Love to warm it in the microwave and put some butter on it.

This is very similar to my standard banana bread (which uses only baking soda, no baking powder). To increase the nutritional value, I always add ground flax meal and either wheat germ or oat bran (1/4 cup of each) plus something for a bit more moisture -- an extra-large banana, a spoonful of sour cream, a couple T's of milk, or a little oil. I also substitute whole wheat flour for half the flour in the recipe. I like the slightly deeper, more complex flavor of these additions.
