“This banana bread has no oil, or butter of any sort. It doesn't need it! Because this bread isn't greasy it makes great muffins without the greasy bottoms I have experienced through other recipes. The walnuts are optional.”

Wow, these were good! I followed everyone's advice and added 4oz unsweetened applesauce, 4 bananas instead of 3, 1 tsp. of cinnamon and vanilla, and added some brown sugar sprinkled on top. Great advice! Made 12 large muffins. Fill them all the way to the top, they make really beautiful crowns. They stick to the paper, but taste oh so yummy. Thanks for the receipe and advice!



These muffins were very yummy and moist, and surprisingly fat free. Many people said their muffins came out a little dry so I added an extra banana and 1/4 cup of skim milk. Also, I used 1 cup of whole wheat flour and 1 cup of white and added some cinnamon and vanilla. I replaced white sugar with brown sugar and I found that 3/4 cups of sugar was too sweet for my taste so I would reduce it to 1/2 cup next time. Overall, the muffins were delicious and I would definitely make them again.



I've made banana muffins many times, and I must say that these are the ultimate! They were moist and delicious! I added a few more bananas and had to cook them for a little longer, but it was worth the wait! I was impressed by the way they puffed up so well! I also made muffin tops with this recipe, simply by plopping the dough in cirles on a baking sheet! Scrumptious!
