  1. Super yummy & moist. Easy to put together as well. I only had two “fresh” ripe banana so I added one that I had frozen & that worked great. Just mashed it with the other two. Did add the walnuts & chocolate chips (my husband & teenage son would say those are “essential”. Thanx!

    1. Mary, Bob’s Red mill 1:1 should be fine. I have not tried it yet but would love to hear how well it works.

    1. I can’t say for certain as we do not give medical advice. Please check with your doctor. 🙂

  2. I just saw this recipe for Olive oil Honey Banana Bread, however I do not see the points for 1 slice, it makes 12 slices per loaf. I am on Blue. Thanks
