"We love these! I make them as directed but with half whole wheat flour."
"The first time I made this I followed the recipe exactly and it turned out fabulous! My husband and son gobbled these up. The next time I got a little adventurous and added more peanut butter and banana and added some oats (3/4 cup peanut butter, 4 mushed bananas, and 3/4 cup oats). It was PERFECT. I also topped them with brown sugar instead of regular sugar. I will DEFINITELY bake these again."
"Super Delicious! I left out the chocolate chips because I didn't have any and used extra crunchy peanut butter. I added a pinch of cinnamon but other than that I followed the recipe exactly. Very fluffy. Living on Maui we always have bananas so I freeze really ripe mashed in sandwich bags that hold about a cup. Works great. Mahalo for sharing."
"Delicious! I made them as jumbo muffins and I got 7 from the recipe. I, too, used regular chocolate chips because I didn't have any miniature chips and I used about 1-1/2 cups banana because I had two overrippe bananas on the counter!"
"We really like this recipe! I take it to brunches or just make it for the family. We have a severe peanut allergy so i substitute soy or almond butters. Sunbutter as a substitute will turn them green.... just in case anyone wonders!"
