Reviews for Banana Nut Muffins
"These were okay, but nothing outstanding. I wanted to try the recipe, since it was so easy. I will not make them again, though."
"Super simple to make and so moist! If you love banana bread, you will love these too. I added a simple powdered sugar glaze to the top and it was fantastic!"
"Very easy, and doubles well. Love the texture and flavor. I like a touch more cinnamon, and I used pecans. Delicious."
"OK, so I made these today and was saving them for breakfast for tomorrow. But, they smelled so good we had to try one. These are sooooooooooooo good. I found they made 7 muffins not 6."
"Yummy, yummy, yummy! I was concerned since the recipe is thick, but they turned out fantastic!"
"I used your recipe but, I used splenda instead of sugar, they are very good... next time I will use the applesauce for the butter."
"Very good muffin recipe. I added some wheat germ. They taste wonderful."
"Great for kids as very low in sugar. I made into mini- muffins and my daughter loved them."

"These muffins taste as good as the name brand, but much better because they're homemade.. :)"
"I doubled this recipe to make 6 very large muffins. I used 1 cup of whole wheat flour and 1 cup of plain flour. I also used pecans instead of walnuts. I also broke additional pecans to put on top of the muffins while they baked. After they cooled slightly, I made icing and drizzled it on the muffins. My family loved it! So yes I would use this recipe again! : )"
"Delicious! I had to double the recipe for my family...you can't eat just one!"
"A great recipe to use up bananas that are too ripe to eat. I used pecans instead of walnuts. A great breakfast with a cup of coffee."
