Banana and chocolate, a great combination, they go so well together! Quick and easy to make as well.

I just got done making these muffins and they are AWFUL. What a waste of perfectly good over-ripe bananas:( I guess I should have read all the reviews first then I wouldve known that the muffins BURN if you bake them for 15 minutes like is recommended in the recipe. Also they just taste gross. Dry baking powdery not sweet enough. Like "add water" box mix or something.:/ I'm no major baker so I don't come on here to mess & tweak with recipes. I want a good recipe the first time. My husband couldn't finish them we couldn't even pawn them off on our kids!! VERY DISAPPOINTED. Read More

These muffins were great. After reading other reviews I lowered the oven temperature to 350 and they turned out moist and delicious. Also I ended up with 12 muffins and a bunch of mini-muffins (which my kids love). Thanks for the great recipe Corwynn! Read More

I really changed up these muffins. I didn't even have bananas on hand so I added 2/3 c homestyle applesauce 1/2 c milk and an extra egg. I also added crushed bran flakes for a non-nutty crunch. Baked also on 350 for 15 minutes. I sell Avon and we just came out with a muffin top pan which I used instead of a regular muffin pan. The second batch I added peach preserves and cream cheese chunks and topped with sliced honey roasted almonds. Both variations were good.. Read More

These muffins were great! I only used half the amount of oil (and used olive oil instead) and they were a huge hit! Read More

I baked these at 425 degrees but they were done after only 13 1/2 minutes. I also had more batter than 12 muffins so made eleven additional MINI-size muffins with the extra batter and baked them about 7 minutes or so. These are delicious! Read More

I should have followed the other reviewer's suggestion and lowered the oven temp!! I checked on them just as they were starting to burn! They were still good tho! I used 3 bananas and had a little over a cup so i also ended up with about 4 more muffins than I was supposed to. The last 4 I lowered the temp to 350 and baked for the recommended time and they came out perfect! Read More
