Reviews for Jumbo Banana-Pecan Muffins
"My new favorite banana muffin recipe! Very moist. I made regular size muffins the second time because the jumbo size was more dessert than breakfast. Also used walnuts instead of pecans."
"moist and light, the streusel bakes into the top so it is easier to eat."
"Made for a Bake Sale to benefit MS Awareness Week and they sold very well.I suggested that they heat in microwave for 15 seconds. Thank You for the great recipe"
"These were absolutely delicious! I think the best muffins I ever made. The bananas are amazing in them. They taste amazing when they are warm. I would definitely recommend this recipe to everyone."
