These banana muffins are my kids' favorite. I adapt it for adults by adding chopped nuts or dried apricots.

These muffins are bakery-quality! I changed the original recipe by reducing the oil to 1/4 cup; I didn't have yogurt, but substituted with 3/4 cup sour cream. I used 2 bananas and added chopped walnuts. The texture was like a cupcake. They taste great right out of the oven--no butter needed! Read More

Absolutely delicious and relatively easy to prepare. I've already made this recipe twice and both times instead of plain yogurt, I used one whole small container of Yoplait Light White Chocolate and Strawberry Yogurt which gives it a wonderful flavor. To make it a little healthier, I use 1 cup unbleached all purpose flour and 3/4 cup of whole wheat flour. I also add 1/2 cup of chopped walnuts. The house smelled heavenly while the muffins baked. After reading a book called "The Perfect Recipe: Getting It Right Every Time", I no longer use the paper cupcake liners. Muffins taste better when you just use a little non-stick cooking spray.

Deeelicious! I used butter instead of oil, added some cinnamon and extra banana and yogurt because the mix was a little doughy and it turned out perfect. (FYI: 1 banana is about half a cup) Read More

These were awsome! This made 36 mini muffins, I baked them at 350 for 15-17 minutes. I didn't have yogurt so I used 1% milk instead and they were fine. Read More

Great recipe! I didn't have any yogurt so i substituted with sour cream and the muffins turned out very moist and yummy. My 4 year old daughter enjoyed making them with me. I added mini chocolate chips to the dry mixture so they wouldn't sink to the bottom. Read More

I made these last night, exactly following the recipe. They were outstanding. Would be good even without the chocolate chips. Read More

A wonderful recipe! I didn't have any vegetable oil, so I used olive oil, which already has great flavor. I couldn't stop eating these last night - they are so sweet and flavorful. Definetly a crowd pleaser! Read More

My daughter and baked these today and they are absolutely delicious. I made a couple of changes - I prefer butter instead of oil, half brown sugar and half white and I think I put in more bananas than called for - but I'm sure the recipe would be just as scrumptious prepared exactly as written. Thanks for sharing your recipe. I will be making these again! Read More
