My quest for a not too sweet banana bread without eggs ends here. Until I find another recipe which might sound better than this at least.
I had a bunch of bananas that were too mushy to eat as is. And, I had company so that spending the bread wasn't a problem. I had bookmarked this recipe from king arthur flour. I reduced the sugar and made it vegan. Result was an awesome bread which doesn't taste like cake.
Many people complain about banana bread being sticky and almost wet. That is mainly due to high sugars in both bananas and the added sugar. This one is moist, but not sticky and is more like bread and not too sweet like a cake.
