Turned out great! I made half a dozen, followed the recipe exactly. Just make sure you don't mix the wet ingredients and the dry ingredients too much. That's the key to making good muffins. Read More

Good + very easy. Wouldn't beat them though, it makes them drier - the key is to barely moisten the mixture and then pop them in the tin. Read More

I used part brown sugar, and added a splash of vanilla and a pinch of cinnamon. You can really taste the banana flavor. and adding nuts is delicious! Read More

This recipe was wonderful! The muffins were moist and tender. I'll definitely use this recipe again, and all other banana recipes will be compared to it. Like other readers, I added 1 tsp of vanilla, 1 tsp of cinnamon, and 1/4 tsp of nutmeg. Enjoy! Read More

Wow, these are really good! I think they're even better than my banana bread. I did use less butter, and added about 1/4 cup applesauce to cut the fat. As per other suggestions, I added some vanilla, and cinnamon, and the result was a moist, spongy banana-y muffin. Excellent! And low fat!!!! Read More

This is an excellent recipe. I give it 5 stars and I didnt add the spices like some of the others did. I didn't want a spice muffin. I wanted a banana nut recipe and thought this one looked very good with the real butter in the ingredients and by the pictures of it. Be sure to mix the wet ingredients first. The secret is to mix by hand and not to overmix. I added walnuts and mixed it up night before and kept in refrigerator to bake fresh in morning. Muffins didn't stick to paper liners. Delicious recipe! Read More

These muffins are really great!! We bake these everytime we have mushy bananas. I have substituted one individual applesauce cup for the butter and they turn out just as good, but with less fat!! I usually also add about a 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla and a sprinkle of cinnamon. I always make the mini muffins and you MUST increase the time by several minutes (if you want them golden on top and not mushy). The kids gobble them up!! Read More

This recipe is PERFECT! I wouldn't change a thing about it. I must admit that I used 3 cups of mashed bananas per batch and I really don't know how many cups 3 large bananas make. My kids gobbled up these muffins (mini & full size) and I realized I finally found a more convenient (and yummier) "Banana Bread" recipe than the one I had. These muffins taste exactly like the bread recipe I've been searching for! Whoever said Banana Bread had to be in loaf form? :) Thanks so much! *TIP* I always have several bags of frozen mashed bananas on hand. I used to just freeze the whole banana, but realized it was much easier to mash them up beforehand and portion them at 2-3 cups per Quart Freezer Ziplock bag. Lay them flat in a 13 x 9 pan and freeze. Once frozen you can remove them from the pan and store them in the freezer. Read More
