Rated 5 out of 5 by Olivia from This bread is bananas My son has FPIES so I'm always looking for good recipes that have minimal substitutions. This one is delicious in my Vitamix. I use coconut oil for butter and Sorghum flour rather than All Purpose. My toddler loves it and so do I!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Deborah C from Best ever banana bread This bread was great toasted for breakfast. I used Swerve instead of sugar. Very easy to make with excellent results. I loved that it is not as cloyingly sweet as some quick breads. The whole wheat also makes it more filling for a longer time than AP Flour would.

Rated 3 out of 5 by KitKatmom from Not my fave Honestly, this is just an average bread. I’m not a fan of the banana with lemon flavor. I would have much rather had cinnamon in the recipe. The consistency was a little bit dry and mixing the bananas in the Vitamix prevented the little black banana residues in the baked bread which I think one of my favorite things about bread or any baked item with bananas as an ingredient.
