These muffins are one of the first things my husband, U.S. Army Lt. Colonel John Duda Jr., gets hungry for when he’s home from deployment. I make sure to have the overripe bananas ready. They’re a family tradition. —Kimberly Duda, Sanford, North Carolina
When I created these moist muffins with our garden-fresh squash, my 3 year-old son kept asking for more. That batch disappeared quickly...and so did the second one! We especially like the topping of brown sugar and cinnamon, which adds a sweet crunch. —TaeRee Glover, Sedan, Kansas
I made these moist muffins to take to the office, and they were a hit. Sugared almonds give them a crunchy topping. When strawberries aren't in season, I use individual frozen cut strawberries directly from the freezer.
Strawberries and rhubarb are a winning combination, and their sweet-tart pairing makes these lovely muffins delightful as part of a meal or as a snack. Remember this recipe when your backyard rhubarb is ready to cut or you see fresh stalks at the store. -Gail Sykora, Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin
One of my family's favorite dishes are these muffins. They measure the ingredients and grease the muffin tins, The muffins not only round out most meals, but they also make great grab-and-go snacks on busy mornings.—Joy Cochran, Roy, Washington
