I really like this recipe. The first time I made it I just used the basic recipe and forgot to put walnuts in. I really missed them. This time I followed this recipe. Instead of using white sugar I used brown sugar. Added 1/2 tsp cinnamon, although I feel that I could have used more, maybe even some nutmeg would be good. I will be making this recipe again and again.

I didn't have sour cream so I used about a tablespoon heavy whipping cream instead. I also mashed bananas into the mix and then folded in additional sliced banana. OH MY GOODNESS! Delicious! the muffins turned out so incredibly moist and flavorful. I will definitely make these again.

Bake only 18-20 min or they dry out. I used chopped pecans and freeze for breakfasts on the go.

These are so easy and so good. I think my mom buys extra bananas so they will get soft and I will have to make these.

These are great to have for breakfast. The only change I made was sprinkling and then gently pressing the walnuts on top of the muffins.

This recipe was a cake texture, not at all like a muffin. Also, cut back on the sugar-they were very vey sweet. And double the nuts, at least. They were good, but not a good muffin. A great little mini cake!! I also doubled the recipe, and got 18 regular sized muffins.

Great Recipe! I followed it to the T and they came out yummy! the only problem is I should've made more because they went too fast. Thanks for the recipe!

Substituted with almond flour, coconut oil, sunflower seeds and turbinado sugar. Added a streusel topping before popping in the oven. Great little muffin recipe with satisfactory texture and flavor. Super easy, quick to throw together and highly versatile.

These were okay, but nothing outstanding. I wanted to try the recipe, since it was so easy. I will not make them again, though.

Super simple to make and so moist! If you love banana bread, you will love these too. I added a simple powdered sugar glaze to the top and it was fantastic!
