These are excellent muffins and very easy to make. I used my large muffin tin instead of the small and got 6 delicious muffins. I know it's a winner if my husband likes them. Definitely a do over.

This is a great muffin! My picky granddaughter loved them. I did add a little Vietnamese cinnamon to the recipe. It's certainly "a keeper" recipe.

Yum! Super easy and tasty. I added cinnamon, which wad am excellent choice. I do not own. Stand mixer, but I enjoy the tiny chunks of banana. Very good with a honey butter spread!

Delicious muffins! This is one of the easiest banana muffin recipes I've ever tried, and it was the one with the best results. I've made my fair share of banana muffins over the years, and I think this recipe made the best muffins yet. I kept the recipe completely as written, but I did add about a half cup of chopped walnuts to the batter. I love that it called for vegetable oil instead of crisco, made it even faster to complete the recipe. I would definitely recommend this recipe. :)

Wonderful recipe! I used three large bananas and for one half cup of the flour used whole-wheat. I added a few mini chocolate chips and made mini muffins. 12 minutes was perfect. My three-year-old helper and I thought they were fantastic! Very easy and delicious!

W-O-W these are the easiest, most delicious muffins I've EVER made!! I did 4 bananas instead of 3 and added a dash of pink Himalayan salt as a final step. Use a handheld mixer to make things easier :)

These muffins we're fast, easy,and delicious! They come out perfectly-- very moist and not too dense. I added about 1cup of frozen blueberries to the batter which added to the flavor. I will definitely use this recipe again!
