As a snack or with a meal, these moist muffins go over great with the kids. The muffins fill them up and get them to eat nutritious bananas at the same time.—Lorna Greene, Harrington, Maine

MY REVIEW

"Very good and easy to make. I used Splenda Blend sugar and omitted the vanilla because I didn't know that I didn't have any until I went to add it. Mine baked in 16 minutes and made 11 muffins. They are so good and moist. We ate them warm and cold and loved them."

"These are so easy & good! My whole family loved them. I used 4 bananas to get more of a banana flavor."

MY REVIEW

"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."

"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."
