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

"Perfect name for this recipe! Made this favorite muffin many times. Out of necessity I have easily used oil with same great results. This is a quick recipe that can be made into lots of mini-muffins or impressive full size muffins. As a volunteer field editor for Taste of Home, I enjoy classic recipe that easily adapt to ingredients on-hand."

"I have made these muffins ever since they were published in the June/July 2013 issue. They are amazing, moist, and super easy. These muffins disappear every time I make them! Also, my husband hates bananas and enjoys these muffins."

"I made this recipe this morning and it was fabulous. I don't have my muffin tins here because I just moved so I made 2 loaves instead and baked them for about 35 mins. This is a keeper!!!"
