I was looking for a good, basic banana muffin recipe and this one fit the bill! So simple to make and just delicious. I threw some butterscotch chips into the batter because I needed to use them up. Next time I might try adding some peanut butter chips, although chips are not necessary since the muffins stand on their own. They're moist and delicious with lots of banana flavor. I did sprinkle some turbinado sugar on top of each muffin before baking. This recipe is perfect for getting kids involved in the kitchen too. I'll definitely keep this recipe handy!

These are delicious and so easy. Like others I like nuts so I added toasted walnuts. Definitely a keeper!

Saw this recipe yesterday and thought they sounded good. My 23-year-old son grabbed one this morning, and declared them to be the best muffins he's ever had, and he's not a muffin fan - then grabbed two more. Hubby loved them, and even though I'm not a banana fan, I thought they were really good, too.

I read the commnents before making this so used 3/4 cups of sugar (I do have a sweet tooth) and added about 1/3 cup chopped walnuts. This is an easy and delicious recipe.

i have been dying to try out making banana bread so when i woke up to overripe bananas on Monday i asked my helper not to throw them away coz i want to bake with them. my daughter overheard us and said mama please make cupcakes and not bread since you don't have bread tin, lol. so i came to google and found this recipe. with my little baking experience and the reviews here i used half cup sugar and they were a hit and soooo moist. the family murdered them so fast they begged me to make more. because i was trying out the recipe i stuck to measurements, except for the sugar of course, but on the weekend i'm going to double it to make 2 dozen. thank you for a simple, fail proof recipe.

These muffins are moist but WAY too sweet. Other recipes I used require less sugar and no vanilla. I tried this anyway and it’s more like a cupcake than muffin.

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.
