This is a great banana bread recipe. My family looks forward to getting banana muffiins every time bananas start to look a little too old. I add an additional 1/2 cup of brown sugar 1tsp. of vanilla and 1tsp. of cinnamon. YUUUUMM! This is definately a recipe I will be serving for many years to come.

I LOVE how these muffins turned out. I've tried making muffins before but they always either turn out too dry or they taste incredibly bland despite the recipe having rave reviews. THIS recipe however did not fail me. I was looking to make hubby a snack for when he goes to work in the morning.

I cut back some on the butter (I cut the amount in half), added the nutmeg, vanilla, and cinnamon other reviewers did, and I used brown sugar. I used some really ripe almost mushy bananas and these muffins turned out FANTASTIC. I baked mine for about 13 minutes since my muffin molds are a little smaller than usual. After eating one and letting the aftertaste set in, I do think I would cut back a bit on the amount of sugar used in the batter next time and play with a different topping; I added some oatmeal to it. Although I think butterscotch chips would make these muffins sinful...

DH needs the calories whereas I do not, so I'm going to gleefully experiment more with this recipe. DELICIOUS!!
