    Excellent recipe made some really nice muffins, I added some blueberries as well  -  07 Oct 2014


    Wow, these were good! I followed everyone's advice and added 4oz unsweetened applesauce, 4 bananas instead of 3, 1 tsp. of cinnamon and vanilla, and added some brown sugar sprinkled on top. Great advice! Made 12 large muffins. Fill them all the way to the top, they make really beautiful crowns. They stick to the paper, but taste oh so yummy. Thanks for the receipe and advice!  -  13 Jun 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    These muffins were very yummy and moist, and surprisingly fat free. Many people said their muffins came out a little dry so I added an extra banana and 1/4 cup of skim milk. Also, I used 1 cup of whole wheat flour and 1 cup of white and added some cinnamon and vanilla. I replaced white sugar with brown sugar and I found that 3/4 cups of sugar was too sweet for my taste so I would reduce it to 1/2 cup next time. Overall, the muffins were delicious and I would definitely make them again.  -  15 Dec 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
