Great recipe! I added cinnamon and a sprinkle of cloves as well as almond extract to spice these up. They came out really moist and delicious.

Yummy! These came out of the oven perfectly moist and tasty. I love recipes that have ripened bananas in them because my bananas always go ripe before I eat them! I love easy recipes, and this one was really simple. Instead of fat-free yogourt I used the 2% stuff since I had it in the house already. And I thing that next time I make them I'll try using cinnamon instead of nutmeg as well. Pixie's idea of sprinkling the tops with cinnamon sugar was helpful, so thanks Pixie!

Lovely light textured muffins with a great banana flavour. Maybe a little more like a cupcake than a muffin but we really loved that about them! I had two small overripe bananas and this was the perfect recipe to use them up. I used cinnamon instead of nutmeg (personal preference) and gave the tops a little sprinkle of cinnamon sugar. Delicious, thanks for posting!
