Comment on this recipe

This receipe has been adjusted for heart healthy eating. I always double the recipe and it will make 5 small loaves. I make it for bake sales and for my family regularly and there are never any leftovers. It always sells out at bake sales and receives compliments wherever it goes.

1/2 cup canola oil
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup Splenda
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup banana, mashed
1-1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup milk soured with 2 tablespoons vinegar
1/2 heaping cup dried cranberries
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
