    This is my go-to recipe for banana bread. My son absolutely loves it! I use olive oil, maple syrup and all purpose flour for mine. And I add in chocolate chips.

    It was okay. The flavor was bland compared to other banana breads I make. It wasn’t as fluffy either. If you want to use some of these particular ingredients or it fits in your diet, it’ll be fine, but I wouldn’t favor it over other recipes.

    Used 1/4 c each oil and maple syrup, and a little more than a cup of banana, and it was still sweet and moist enough

    Turned out really good. My grandkids who are so picky and helped, loved them. We will make them again.

    Turned out so good. I used chocolate chips as the mix-in. However, all the chocolate chips fell to the bottom of the pan so I guess I should have tossed them in flour before adding them.
