Top Review by Happy Hippie

This is a very tasty muffin which is loaded with banana flavor, nice and moist and oh so easy to make. I made half the recipe and it made 6 jumbo muffins that baked for exactly 30 minutes. I prepared without the optional topping and they were still delicious. I will make these treasures many times. Next time I will add the topping for variety. Thanks Sizzlera for your awesome contribution. Keep up the good work.
