MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 13, 2014

My husband and 3 boys really enjoyed these. I will absolutely make them again!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 20, 2014

Our muffins weren't dry, I only used 2 bananas and cut back on the flour I put in after reading the other reviews. I'm told they could've been fluffier, but that's tough for the nature of a banana muffin.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 28, 2013

Like other reviewers, I tweaked the recipe. I cut out the white sugar, using 1/2 c brown sugar only. I had 5 small to medium bananas on hand, so I used them all. I used half the chocolate chips. And I also used 2 T of baking powder instead of the baking soda because it's what I had on hand. I also omitted the nuts so my kids would like them. :)

The mini muffins turned out especially good. My kids loved them. So did I!

MY REVIEW
