    Moist and simple to make!

    Came out perfect. Baked for about 10-15 mins longer. After going through the comments, I used an extra banana, less (half cup) sugar (brown), some honey and chocolate chips instead of walnuts. Also omitted the yoghurt. Thank you so much for the recipe.

    Very good! I added chocolate chips too and a little less sugar.
    Great! I did not add the yogurt, yet it still came out moist and delicious.

    Yes, it is wonderful. It will make one 9 inch pan and a smaller 8” in pan. I had to use peach yogurt, but it still came out great!

    It rose a little higher than expected, maybe too much batter in the pan? May modify a little next time. It tasted great!

    We loved it!! It turned out perfect. After the initial 55 minutes, I lowered the temperature to 325, covered it in tinfoil and cooked it an additional 15 minutes.

    Bread baked up nice, stored and sliced well. I used 1 cup of chopped pecans in place of the walnuts and Swerve granulated sweetener instead of the sugar. Although the flavor was good I do think it could have benefitted from a touch of cinnamon which I will add the next time. Overall very nice recipe that I will make again.

    Very easy to bake. unfortunately I didn't have walnuts, so I did without them. result was pretty good, ans beautiful too. I was very happy with it 😁

    Dee-lish! Used pecans instead of walnuts because I burned those while toasting because I misread "preheating oven", and took it to mean "preheated oven".

    Delicious. I made it exactly as directed first time so the second time I experimented by adding a bit of cinnamon and a little brown sugar. We shall see!

    I didn't use the walnuts because I didn't have any on hand, but this was one of the best banana breads I've ever made. Moist on the inside and just slightly crunch on the outside. It has a nice crust to it. I will be making this again.

    I used 4 bananas, a stick of butter, 1/2 cup sugar, 1/4 cup of chocolate chips. No nuts! The yogurt really helps. First time I tried that.
