My mom and aunt lived with us for awhile and they both loved banana bread, but we had trouble finding one that we liked. This is one of many that Taste of Home has published over the years and we found that it was the best, at least for us. Because of being diabetic and all of us needing to eat healthier I took the basic recipe and tweaked it until I came up with this version that would work for all of us in the family.
