"I made these yesterday for Bible study and boy were they well received! Next time I will use a stronger coffee to enhance that flavor & might substitute white chocolate chips and banana flavoring... made 23 instead of 24 and used about 1-1/2 cup mashed bananas. Thanks for sharing!"

"Looks like the same recipe as the Banana-Coffee cake Muffins made at Kathleen's bake Shop (known now as Tate's bake Shop) in Southampton, NY. I have the recipe book from this bakery and have been making these muffins for my family for over 10 years. They are great!!"
