  1. This loaf turned out great! I cut back the sugar to 1/2c. and the oil to 1/4c. I also added one extra banana and doubled the strawberries. Chopped pecans were a great addition as well as 3 T. of cocoa. What a great chocolatey and healthy treat!
  2. Don't let the amount of sugar in this recipe scare you off - I made it with only 1/2 cup of sugar and it came out great. It makes it more of a snack bread and less of a dessert. I also reduced the oil to 1/3 cup and added a bit of salt vanilla - Read more ...

  6. Wow! This natural-foods enthusiast says "thumbs up". I revised some of the ingredients and it was still incredibly delicious. The pale pink color inside is lovely as well. I scaled down the sugar to about 1 cup (and used raw) and I used a combo of alternate grains (cornmeal rice flour buckwheat etc.)to substitute part - Read more ...
  7. The bread seemed over-done when I cooked it the hour and 15 minutes. If I made it again I'd cook it for less time. The flavor was pretty good.
  8. My husband didn't like this bread. He said it tastes like flour... I didn't find it anything special or great either.
