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 of the whole wheat flour for variety. To add moisture and reduce fat, I substituted applesauce for part of the vegetable oil. Adding a pinch of ginger spices it up nicely too. It's so good that I'm baking it for the teachers at my kids' school for their special luncheon. Thank you!!]

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!

My husband didn't like this bread. He said it tastes like flour... I didn't find it anything special or great either.
