SO HOW'D IT GO?

This turned out wonderful! I used canola oil for the oil, added a tad more flour along with a tablespoon of a liquid egg replacer I have, put in some walnuts, and used regular white sugar (we didn't have anything else). Most vegan baking recipes don't work out for me but this one wasn't just easy to make, it smells good and tastes amazing!!

The best banana bread just became the best pumpkin bread.  I served this recipe substituting pumpkin for the bananas and added a teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice (you might want a little more) and all the ladies at the bridal shower gobbled it right up! 
Thanks for the recipe, Mom!  :-*  Love ya!

YUM
I used 1 cup spelt flour, almost 1/2 cup millet and one massive tablespoon of light buckwheat flour (I love buckwheat in banana bread), plus I substituted melted Earth Balance ("Buttery Sticks") for the oil and used Just Us fair-trade oraganic cane sugar for sweetner.  I have pretty much the same sentiment as all of the above commenters:  didn't rise a lot but light&fluffy, great texture and tastes amazing.  Thanks!

This banana bread is very delicious.  I made it with spelt flour instead of wheat flour and it was still awesome!  I'm frankly a little concerned that I might eat most of it by the time my boyfriend gets home from work.  Man...so good.

you know, this is like one of the only recipes I've made to turn out!!  :D This banana bread is totally DELICIOUS and moist and perfect; I would never guess it's vegan! Tastes best after cooled with a tad of butter. I'll enjoy this recipe for awhile...thanks!!!

I wanted to try a new recipe for BB and this one is delish! left out the corn meal and replaced the most of the oil with applesauce (a scan't 1/4 c a.s. with the rest (1 TB or so) oil). I made one with chips and one with walnuts. This will go into my regular rotation.  8)

This is the best banana bread ever!!! I score a whole bunch of organic bananas so I made a lot of banana bread (some with whole wheat, some with white flour, some with walnuts and some without)in all instances I used corn flour rather than corn meal...this turned out sooo good!! I also made muffins!! All my friend are going crazy and demanding more!!! (luckily I scored some more organic bananas! ;-)

This is a great recipe!  It's a bit different from the usual banana bread- lighter, and the cornmeal adds a nice texture.  I used a mixture of regular whole wheat flour and white flour, and it turned out great.  I also added a touch of cinnamon.  I'll definitely be making this again.
