Reviews for Basic Banana Muffins
"The whole family loved these muffins! I added a few mini chocolate chips to them all and then added chopped walnuts to half. Baked them in mini muffin tins for about 13 minutes."
"Fantastic and simple recipe! Loved it! I added a few tablespoons of jam I needed to use up from the fridge, and I loved the added depth of flavor."
"I love this recipe. I squish my bananas in a big zip lock bag and then I add the rest of the ingredients (liquids first) to the same bag, squish it up real good and then just snip the bag corner to easily fill my muffin tins. Sooo easy!"
"Excellent muffins! Definitely a keeper!"
"Wow were these good! Really moist and filling with the oats. Definitely a keeper!"
