MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 26, 2014

I thought these were ok. I did use 12 regular size muffins, and added one more banana. I liked the muffins without the frosting. I am awful with frosting though, so I am sure it is something that I did. They are very sweet, so don't use more that a little on each muffin.

I made 12 regular size muffins, and they were so moist and flavorful. I reduced baking time to 20 min. and it was perfect. They were good without the caramel icing This will replace my banana bread recipe.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 26, 2013

I was expecting amazing, and these weren't. I made 14 regular size cupcakes, and 20 minutes was too long. I should have checked them at 18 minutes. I still rated three stars because of the flavor. The Makeover Banana Nut Bread, was more moist and I gave it five stars.

MY REVIEW

We loved these! I added 1 tsp. baking powder and they were very light and tender. I baked 12 standard size muffins.
