"Sort of bland tasting, could use another banana, maybe a little more sugar or something else. Nice size using a muffin scoop to fill. Made 11."

"Very tasty! I doubled the recipe - worked well- and added 1/2 tsp. cinnamon, 1 tsp. vanilla and 3/4 c. dried cranberries. [Just flavours I like!] Always need good recipes for "overdue" bananas! Thanks Gloria."
