SO HOW'D IT GO?

Ooooh I wish I had made the frosting! I made these into muffins, and they were terrific, but I think they would've been much better with the frosting.

i made this using white whole wheat flour, and I think that may have been why it turned out a little dry.  next time i will probably do half white, half whole wheat, and maybe add a little extra soymilk or applesauce to moisten it up a bit.  i didn't add the frosting because i was lazy and just making this to use up some very ripe bananas, and it was just fine without it.  really good!

This is AMAZING!!!!
I made a few small adjustments.  I subbed 1/2 cup of the flour for soy flour and for the rest used Whole Wheat.  And I used homemade applesauce and subbed it for half the soy milk.  I still ended up adding a full cup of soymilk though, because the batter still wasn't completely wet , and it came out SO MOIST!
The frosting is GREAT!
I'm definitely making this for my birthday cake. ;D
Thank you for the GREAT recipe!!

I made these into muffins, and they were so good warm from the oven. I replaced the oil with extra peanut butter,  and you definitely do not want to add anymore bananas then suggested. They aren't good the day after so eat them as fast as you can!

I can't believe how much people love this recipe.  I made it for my brother and best friend in NYC.  I have to ship it to each of them.  They keep calling asking for more. I just made 2 more in round pans.  I have modified them slightly by adding buckwheat honey and less processed sugar.  I am a pescatarian not vegan and so I like using honey as a sweetner.  I added dark chocolate along with semisweet and all natural peanut butter.  I love, love, love this recipe.  Thanks so much for the recipe.

Jeanette :D :P
