"I was disappointed after reading the positive reviews - the reason I made them. I used ripe bananas as other suggested. Very bland..."

"I love the simplicity of this recipe, its quick bake time, and low calorie count compared to other banana breads. I used three medium, very ripe (pretty much black) bananas, and the batter was wonderfully moist. They raised beautifully and I found the taste just sweet enough."

"These muffins had great banana flavor! I used 2 ripe bananas but had to add about 2 Tbsp more milk as my batter was dry. I too would sweeten the recipe a bit, but that is personal preference."
