I doubled this and I think if I would double it again I would use three bananas and less cinnamon. The cinnamon really overpowered the banana taste. Nice and moist though! Read More

I made lots of changes to this recipe. I used half all-purpose flour and half whole wheat flour. I also used splenda instead of sugar and unsweetened applesauce instead of margarine. I was trying to make them as healthy as possible because I'm on a really strict diet. They taste absolutely delicious! The only thing I would change next time is I would add a bit more banana.

Delicious- caution not to bake 30 minutes... mine were on the well side at 28 minutes. I added mini chocolate chips and my kids loved them. Bake on middle shelf in the oven! Read More

I used fat free vanilla yogurt as suggested by another review and was great! Even the man liked it (and he usually can detect fat free items!) Thanks... Read More

This is a fantastic recipe just the right combination of spices and banana. One suggested alteration for those who are interested: my husband has diabetes and i use half sugar and half splenda and it works wonderfully with no loss of flavor! Read More

The muffins were moist as promised but they are pretty bland and don't taste much of banana. Read More
