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

"These are easy and delicious muffins! I love muffin recipes that I don't have to cream any butter/margarine. I did follow some other reader's suggestions to change the 1 cup of sugar to 1/2 cup white and 1/4 cup brown sugar; I also added 1/2 - 3/4 c chocolate chips and for half the batch, I added some walnuts. They are SUPER moist and taste great the next day, too! My entire family loves them! No more banana bread for me with my over-ripe bananas - this is my new go-to! My kids love to bring them to snack time at school!"
