    I used a cupcake tray instead of the one in the directions to reduce the baking time, and it came out fluffy and light. It has the right amount of sweetness and the taste of the ingredients blended well together

    Great recipe! I used buckwheat flour and a half honey/half maple mix with walnuts. It was delicious.

    Perfect recipe! Turned out yum. My bread got done in 30 min itself although the recipe says to keep it longer . Also since I didn’t have enough honey I put the rest half coconut sugar and it was still great . I love this recipe and will make it again .

    the recipe was really easy and simple. It took like 10 minutes to put it together and I loved how it tasted. It was like something i’d order at a restaurant, but healthier and just as good :) Definitely recommend to everyone!

    I just made it. It came out so tasty! In the past when I’ve made banana bread I wanted to love it, but I never really did. This one I love! I didn’t have cinnamon (because I used the last of it this morning in oatmeal), so I made it without . It is still amazing! Love the coconut oil and maple syrup options.

    loved this recipe, super simple and I already had all the ingredients! I added chopped walnuts and turned out wonderfully, looks really pretty too when it’s all done!

    We are enjoying this bread. Threw in semi-sweet chocolate chips but will probably use dark or milk chocolate next time. Don’t know if it’s because I used regular flour rather than whole wheat but the flavor combination just seemed a little off to me. Took 1 hour 10 minutes to bake.

    It turned out a bit too moist but everyone loved it. I am planning to use a little less coconut oil and milk on the next one.

    Great recipe! Modified it a bit by adding macadamia bits and crumbs from True North pecan clusters. By far my most favorite recipe for banana bread.
