I agree that these are bland; the bananas' sweetness wasn't enough. I used craisins instead of raisins, didn't perk them up either. And they never looked baked. I will try the recipe again with 1/8 t salt, and some cinnamon!

I did alter the recipe slightly. I added less than 1/8 teaspoon of salt, and that enhanced the flavor greatly.
