"These were delicious! The bananas I used were very small. I added about 1/4 c of unsweetened applesauce just in case I didn't have enough moisture. I loved the sweet crust that formed on top of the muffins. I also used half brown sugar and half white sugar. Our new favorite!"

"These were so easy, and so delicious. I added a few chocolate chips in the middle of each muffin, chopped a half cut of pecans into the flour mixture along with few teaspoons of flaxseed. Great way to use ripe bananas and treat the family! Wish I could add a photo!"
