As I have made this recipe a few times over, I've tweaked it a bit but its more to my family's preference (aka my dad the judge lol)
I've increased the mashed bananas to 1-3/4c instead of the 1-1/4c (or used 3 x med-lg banana's instead of 3 x sm-med banana's) and added an addt'l spoon of oil...all to help to make it more moist. I guess its personal preference.
I think I bumped up the cinnamon to 1 tsp from 1/2 as well and added 1 tsp allspice - I think I had to do that b/c there was more banana's.
I also omitted the nuts b/c I thought the texture was fine enough b/c it was whole wheat flour but thought about added them on top while baking.
