    OK Derek we need to talk! I made this recipe over the holidays (Christmas 2015). You have single-handedly RUINED MY CHIRSTMAS! WHY? I'LL TELL YOU WHY? THIS BANANA BREAD IS SO FREAKIN' GOOD EVERY TIME I SHOWED UP WITH ONE PEOPLE DEMANDED. NOT ASKED! D-E-M-A-N-D-E-D!! I BAKE ANOTHER ONE. I made this recipe SIX TIMES over the holidays! ARGH!!!  I WAS ALWAYS SLAVING OVER A HOT LOAF PAN I DIDN'T GET TO ENJOY CHRISTMAS UNTIL CHRISTMAS DAY!!*insert angry monkey pointing finger here*Furthermore, and when I told them it was high protein they didn't believe me. Now I cheated a little and used sweetened apple sauce, honey, five bananas, and pecans but MAN THIS WAS GOOD! When I was finally able to get a piece of this I was even shocked how good it was. You know its good when five year old kids want this banana bread instead of cake! Well done Derek! Well done!

    March 27, 2016 at 10:46 pm

    I didn't have baking powder, used a bit extra baking soda, it didn't quite expand like yours did though lol it's more like banana cake right now

    Can they be the 1 min. oats?
     I just bought some real cinnamon a few days ago, it's so much more money that the stuff they say call cinnamon from the markets, it really much better for  your health  then the  cheap stuff,  I was curious, so I googled  information about cinnamon and thats how I found out the difference. That one doesn't really do anything for our health, see how they try to fool us.

    If I don't have protein powder do I just use a little more oat flour?

    Absolutely love these easy and beautiful recipies.
    But I am a bit worried about the products that are "artificial" in lack of a better word.
    Like vanilla ekstract instead of actual vanilla, and the cooking spray, which must be some kind of non-natural fat.

    I love these recipies, but was wondering about the engredients that are not natural. Is there a substitude for this, or would it ruin the purpose?

    Thanks, Anna

  29. Ken Graham

    March 27, 2016 at 10:46 pm

    Do you know how many grams of saturated fat per serving? Also, do I need to add cinnamon or could I leave it out?

    My favorite trick for banana bread is to put the nuts only on top of the batter. As the bread bakes the nuts get toasty golden brown and stay crunchy. Great job of showing how to peel a banana, too!

    those bananas aren't ripe at all but great recipe!
