    Altered ingredient amounts. I added 1 tbspn choc chips and used SR flour. I don't think the lemon rind is complimentary as it takes away from the banana taste so I'll leave it out next time.  -  18 Jun 2009


    Altered ingredient amounts. These muffins are really easy to make and very good. I do recommend adding more walnuts then the recipe calls for. And i used one whole egg and one egg white.  -  14 Jul 2008


    Quick and easy to make. I added 3 tablespoons of choc chips and left out the lemon and they tasted really nice. Will make again.  -  14 Nov 2011
