"This is an excellent recipe!!!! After making a batch I see no reason to even try another recipe. I added walnuts and chocolate chips. They were light, moist and beyond delicious!!!!"

"I've been making this recipe for months now but never rated it. These are really easy to make fast if I want to take them somewhere or if someone is coming over. I get between 14 and 16 muffins out of the single recipe. My muffin tins are just the standard size, not jumbo. I add 1/3 cup mini chocolate chips to my recipe and sometimes chopped pecans or walnuts. They are good just as the recipe is stated also. I like the mini chocolate chips versus the larger ones so you taste more banana. Very good recipe and a keeper! They also freeze well and I'll pop one in the microwave for myself in the morning. Yum! Thanks for sharing Lorna."

"This is a really great recipe especially for beginners. The ingredients are really simple and the directions are easy to follow. They came out great. 1 c of sugar made it super sweet so I'll put in less next time.

*I didn't have baking soda at the time so I used 3 tsp. of baking powder as others suggested"

"Great recipe! Half cup sugar is good and plenty, especially if the bananas are ripe and sweet. I substituted a quarter cup of oats for some of the flour."

"I have just made these and they were perfect in every way! Trying to cut down on sugar so I only put in half a cup. Instead of 3 bananas, I put in 2 and added a small box of sultanas and a pear diced into small pieces then sprinkled some sunflower seeds on the top. They were beautiful and definitely sweet enough.....even for me!! Thanks so much for sharing :)"

"Perfect recipe. The first time I added 1 cup dried cranberries because I love cranberries. Second time I added cranberries and chopped walnuts. The muffins came out perfect. Finally, I found a really, really moist muffin recipe. Love the texture."
