Reviews forBasic Banana Muffins
"came out perfect!!"
"Light and fluffy . I added nutmeg and cinnamon..and some coconut flakes. A pinch of garam masala is nice in the top. Good. Basic. easy recipe."
"Simple and Delicious! It’s a little dense, but the flavor is on point!"
"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!!!!"
"The best banana muffins, moist and sweet plus easy to make."
"Very easy and tasty!!"
"This is a basic banana muffin recipe, but very easy and very good!"
"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."
