I really like these muffins! Just pulled them from the oven, so I'm sure they'll be even better tomorrow. I made it as directed using the lesser amount of sugar (which was perfect), but halved the recipe and it made a few more than 6 muffins. Made for I Recommend Tag Game. Thanks for posting, Boomette--will definitely make these again!

  • 12 teaspoon baking soda
  • 12 teaspoon salt
  • 12 cup slivered almonds, chopped
  • 12 cup maraschino cherry, chopped
  • 14 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips


  1. Put the eggs in a large bowl. Beat until it’s soft and frothy. Add the sugar and oil. Beat well. Incorporate the mashed bananas and the almond extract.
  2. Put all the other ingredients in another bowl. Stir until combined. Put in the eggs mixture. Stir until combined. Put in 12 greased muffins cups.
  3. Cook for 30 minutes at 350 F until a tooth-pick inserted in it comes out clean.
