  1. 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 - Read more ...
  2. 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 - Read more ...
  3. 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 - Read more ...
  4. 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.
  5. 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!
  6. 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.
  7. 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!!!!
  8. Great recipe. I replaced the butter with applesauce for a low fat muffin with wonderful results.
  9. 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!
