Reviews for Basic Banana Muffins

"These are so easy & good! My whole family loved them. I used 4 bananas to get more of a banana flavor."
"I have been making these for my youngest daughter since she was 2 and at 15, she still asks for them any time she sees that we have old bananas. I added cinnamon and usually use 4 bananas which makes a bit more than 12 dozen. @silkiepearls, blueberries are excellent in it! I make her dozen and then I add blueberries to the rest for mine. I put how ever many I am in the mood for, and always use frozen."
"I love this recipe. So easy to make and ingredients are very basic. Kids at home love it too. You can make these even when in a bit of a rush. Thanks!!!"
"These muffins are spectacular. They are really good. I've tried several recipes, and none came out as moist and flavorful as these. As one other reviewer suggested, I did half a cup of granulated sugar and 1/4 cup of brown sugar. I also used half whole wheat flour and half white flour. Also just barely mix it until the wet folds into the dry."
"So delicious and so easy! This is now my go-to recipe for using up old bananas!"
