Reviews for Banana Chip Muffins
"They were good but not my favorite banana muffins. They were more of a bread texture, a bit on the chewy side. I guess we prefer a moist banana muffin or bread mixture. It must be the oatmeal, but there is an oatmeal banana cookie recipe that is wonderful - so definitely a combination of other ingredients that give it the wrong texture for our taste."
"The black squiggly things in the muffins are the banana's seeds. (Bananas are botanically a berry.)I made these with blackberries instead of the chocolate chips and used just one banana (that's all I had) and added a bit of juice from canned sweet potatoes. They turned out good, but aren't my best muffin."
"I made these and there are black squiggly hair like things in them... Anyone now why?"
"Pretty good, but didn't wow me. I did a few changes. I used 4 bananas, a heaping 1/2 cup of oats, regular sized chocolate chips, and made it a loaf instead of muffins. I baked it for 45 mins and it needed more, so it cooked for about 15 mins longer. I think I should've cooked it for 10 mins longer instead of 15. Definitely a hearty bread with the oats in it. I'll prolly make again though."
"Amazing texture!! Very moist!! Adding these to my Christmas gift baskets for friends, family, and the neighbors!!"
"The oats in this recipe give it more texture than typical muffins. Love the crunch of the top with the moist chocolately inside!"
"Have been making this recipe over 10 years. It's a favorite of my now-grown kids"
"Fantastic!!!! Easy and Delicious the best combination!"
"This recipe was quick to put together and it tastes delicious!! I was worried the oatmeal would make the muffin grainy, but I wouldn't have noticed the oatmeal if I hadn't seen the recipe. Delicious! Thanks for sharing! :)"
