Most wonderful banana muffins I have ever made!!!! TASTY. My wife goes crazy for them and so do all of our friends and family. We have passed this recipe on to many people we know and they all love it. I love adding chocolate chips to the recipe to add a delightful surprise. JO JO you rock!!!!!


I made lots of changes to this recipe. I used half all-purpose flour and half whole wheat flour. I also used splenda instead of sugar and unsweetened applesauce instead of margarine. I was trying to make them as healthy as possible because I'm on a really strict diet. They taste absolutely delicious! The only thing I would change next time is I would add a bit more banana.


I doubled this and I think if I would double it again I would use three bananas and less cinnamon. The cinnamon really overpowered the banana taste. Nice and moist though!
