These banana muffins are my kids' favorite. I adapt it for adults by adding chopped nuts or dried apricots.

"As a volunteer Field Editor for Taste of Home, I love to try out new recipes. I made these today for my daughters who are 8 & 12. They both gave thumbs up when I asked how they were. I can't offer an opinion because I am gluten and dairy free. I only had 1/4 cup of canola oil so I topped it up with apple sauce and melted butter. I also used only 1/2 cup sugar I filled the muffin cups and got 12 large muffins. Very easy to make!"

"Great muffins! I prefer mini chocolate chips in them, I also think they would be good with peanut butter chips too!"

"These were delicious! I measured about 1/2 cup of sugar and poured toasted wheat germ right on the sugar in my measuring cup to equal the 3/4 indicated. (Great way to cut sugar and add some extra nutrition). Also realized I forgot to add the salt once I had the filled muffin tin in the oven. Was worried how they would turn out without it, but did not even miss the salt at all! Thanks for the super quick and easy recipe."
