I am giving 4 stars because of the flavor of these. They are not too sweet and are rich in banana flavor. I made as written, though, and found the batter to be too thin. The muffins rose up nice and high, but then collapsed as they cooled, and the texture was spongy. This was most likely caused by the amount of moisture in them. I would leave out the milk, or add a bit more flour next time, and cut back the amount of margarine a bit. Made for ZWT 7.
