Amazing! Light & fluffy. It made 52 mini muffins. I followed others' advice and I added 1/4 c. cream, 1/2 t. salt, 1 t. vanilla, & 1/4 t. nutmeg (Next time I will change to 1/8 t...it was a bit strong, but the taste is still great!). Bake time only 11 minutes for mini muffins. I give this five stars because it is an amazing base recipe! Read More

Followed recipe AND added: 1/4 cup Organic Valley Heavy Whipping Cream 1 tsp. Nutmeg 1 tsp. Vanilla. Served with homemade honey-cream cheese. Huge hit everyone LOVED them!! (Heavy cream contributed to a less dense much softer lighter muffin; clearly not calorie lighter!) Read More

These were really good. I thought they were going to be too sweet b/c my bananas were very ripe and the batter was sweet but the finished product was fine. I gave it 4 stars b/c I decided to add a tsp of vanilla and a bit of cinnamon to make it tastier. I only cooked mine 10 min and they were perfect. Read More

3.26.16 I prepared this recipe exactly as written BUT did add a couple things. We like our banana bread with nuts so I added some chopped walnuts. And I had some fresh blueberries in the fridge so I dusted them with flour and added them to a dozen of the mini muffins. And finally I did substitute the sugar with Truvia Baking Blend. This is as good as any banana bread I ve ever made and I can see these disappearing quickly on a brunch table (well any table really). The muffins were perfectly baked at 13 minutes they're tender moist and loaded with banana flavor. cathy thanks for sharing your recipe it s a winner in this house. Read More

5 stars with additions, four without. I added 1/4 cup whole milk, 1 tsp vanilla, a slightly rounded 1/8 tsp cinnamon, a literal dash of nutmeg (strong stuff), and 1/2 tsp salt - in short, what's recommended in the top review but with cinnamon and a little tweaking. It's not enough to detract from the banana. Just adds some depth. Read More
