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."
