SO HOW'D IT GO?

I've made a lower-carb and lower fat version of this recipe (applesauce for the oil and substituting for the flour) and it came out great
I also added a small amount of dates (in lieu of part of the sugar) and pecans and walnuts for a bit of vegan protein yess
Thanks for the recipe, I will be making this again

I made these into cupcakes and added shredded coconut. So good! I didn't have a lot of hope for them; the batter was runny, and I subbed half the sugar for stevia. But they turned out amazing! Very soft and moist. Everyone else loves them, too. I also used 3 tbs cinnamon for a double recipe.

I have just made this as a birthday cake and made a cupcake one to taste...it was LOVELY! I doubled up the recipe, used half oil and half apple sauce and substituted 1/4 of the sugar with banana milkshake powder. I made an icing with marg, icing sugar and banana milkshake powder and topped with candied walnuts ( 1 cup of walnuts, 2tbsp marg, 2 tbsp sugar and cinnamon...stir over a high heat until caramalised).

I like that the ingredient list is so minimal! It's baking right now and smells soo good; I hope it turns out better than the other vegan banana cakes I've tried!! :/

This cake was amazing!!! It did take a bit longer to bake than instructed, but that just meant the whole house smelled like delicious banana cake for a little while longer.  Thank you so much for this cracker-jack of a recipe!

I wanted to add that I only used 2 tablespoons of cinnamon, and that was plenty.  I might even use a little less next time.  The chocolate chips sound really good too, I will add them too
