These were AMAZING! The muffins were huge and moist with a delicious chocolatey flavor. I added 1/2 tsp. cinnamon and 1/8 tsp. nutmeg, which seemed to complement the flavors well.

These are scrumptious! I halved the recipe and it still made 7 BIG muffins. Next time I will half it again and fill all 12 cups. I used 2 ripe bananas and substituted milk mixed with lemon juice for the Buttermilk. (Use 1T. lemon juice per 8oz. milk and allow to sit for a few minutes.) They turned out beautifully! I will be making these again!

These muffins were delicous!!! My kids loved them and they were gone in one day. They turned out big and moist and I love the banana and chocolate together. Thank You so much.

This was a great recipe!!! I didn't have regular milk or buttermilk so I used soy milk and it still turned out wonderful!!! I also only had light brown sugar but that doesn't make much of a difference. I'm going to have to hide them from my son becaus ehe has tried to eat them all! Next time I will substitute 4 egg whites for the 2 eggs to lower the calories and cholesterol even more. The chocolate and banana flavors are perfectly balanced. The recipe was very easy to follow. The recipe made 21 very large muffins and 12 mini as well. Will make these again.

These were good but I had to try them several times to get it right! I ended up using 5 bananas, 1/2 cup brown sugar + 1/2 cup Splenda & applesauce for the oil. In the end I decided to use the full 1/2 cup cocoa although it was suggested that the amount be reduced. Great recipe but it needed some tweaking!

I tried these for the "I recommend" game based on LongHornMama's recommendation. We enjoyed them. It took 6 large (previously frozen) bananas to make the amount required. I used splenda brown sugar for baking, the amount recommended for 3/4 cup. These didn't turn out quite as sweet as I would have liked but that may have been because of the splenda. The kids loved them (which I appreciate) and I too enjoyed them. Kind of a subtle flavor with a good texture. Thanks Jenny!

Fantastic!!These muffins are incredible..dark chocolately and moist. As Jenny says, they're not a cupcake in disguise, and I love that the recipe uses whole wheat flour. I used 6 very ripe black bananas and soured milk instead of commercial buttermilk. Recipe made 12 very large, batter full to the top muffins. Perfect at 21 minutes. Thanks, Jenny, for a great recipe!

I felt that these were more like cupcakes than muffins & a little too sweet for our breakfast tastes! Since the banana flavour was barely discernible - even though I used 4 large bananas - I would reduce the amount of cocoa and, as Cindy already suggested, cut back on the oil. Thanx Jenny!

I had high hopes for this recipe because I love chocolate and I love bananas. But something just wasn't right. I made exactly as directed but found they needed a little 'oomph' and the consistency wasn't right. Maybe a little too much oil? Overall, I'd say they were okay.
