    This recipe is great! I've made it several times and get compliments every time. Every time, I try it a little different too - add a little cinammon, add a little vanilla, use less sugar, use brown sugar - and it always holds up. These are also great as mini muffins.  -  03 Apr 2018


    I tried this recipe as is and found it a tad too sweet, and a bit bland as far as flavour goes. It was very moist however so I tried again, using 3/4 cup of sugar instead. I also added 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla and a pinch of cinnamon. They came out perfect! Yummy  -  10 Feb 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Excellent!!! Even my husband who is not a banana muffin eater love them!!!! I did shorten the cooking time to 25 minutes. One tip...Freeze old bananas. Just peel and put in a zip lock bag for future use. Thanks! Karen  -  30 Jul 2004  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
