Very moist and tasty with good banana flavor! I use applesauce in place of the oil and use part whole wheat flour. From www.TopSecretRecipes.com

I tripled this recipe with no problem. I used applesauce and not oil. I left out the lemon and banana flavorings (my over ripe bananas had more than enough flavor). I also forgot to add the regular milk...duh. But no ill effects whatsoever. The buttermilk and bananas held their own in keeping these moist. Tasty, flavorful muffins with a crusty, sugary muffin top. They invoke that sugar fiend, which was gone until I had one of these. Could not stop at one! Luckily I had the points to cover it. Would make them again.

Good. Sweet muffin, outside is a bit sticky. Nearly fat free if you leave out the walnuts as I did. Would suggest stirring flour mixture in by hand, though, as overmixing tends to make muffins tough and lowfat muffins can be more rubbery than their fatty baked good counterparts. Thanks for sharing the recipe! Made for PAC Fall 2008.

I made the muffins and subsituted chocolate chips for the walnuts, the chips sunk to the bottom because the batter was pretty soupy. The flavor was ok, not very banana like though.
