    Hello ! Made this several times. Can I make this without chocolate chips or nuts ? Baking to take to daughter’s school with kids allergic to chocolate and / or nuts. Are there any modifications if I take out the chocolate chip and nuts? Thank You !

    These were fantastic, I added 1/2 cup of applesauce and 1/2 cup of rolled oats to the recipe. The muffins turned out moist, packed with flavour and what can I say about the chocolate chips.....

    These muffins were delicious! VERY MOIST!! I took the other reviewers advice and added the applesauce and oatmeal - it was wonderful! I also increased the chocolate chips to 1/2 cup - I'm a chocoholic! I will definately make these again. I also found that it only took 25 minutes to cook in my oven. Thanks for posting

    Delish!!! So easy to make, will make these again and again! Followed the recipe exactly... however, mine were done in 25 minutes. Light and not too sweet ~ just perfect!

    These were fantastic!! Easy, fluffy, moist, and very tasty! I added only 1/4 cup each of sugar, brown sugar, and chocolate chips. I added 1/2 tsp of vanilla extract and an extra 1/2 tsp of baking soda so they were lighter. Made 12 beautiful, fragrant muffins. My family agreed that these were the best banana muffins we've ever had -- and we've been using family recipes for years. Thank you for the wonderful and healthy recipe!

    This recipe was the BOMB! I just happened acrossed it and thought I'd give it a try for it's simplicity. Most of the stuff I attempt comes from a mix, so this was definately something new. It turned out fantastic! I added the chips into each individual muffin cup at half-full, then added more on top when filled. Half a dozen with chopped walnuts on top, half just the chips. They were done in only 20 min. Totally fantastic! Thanks again!

    Add at least 5 minutes more in the oven. And always add more chocolate!! ??
  2. Bebek C.
    Add 1 tsp of baking powder, 1 tsp of all spices, 1 tsp of rum and reduce the salt to 1/2 tsp. I also reduced the sugar to 1/4 cup each. Turn out moist and fragrant

    Add way less sugar.

    I made these, but I used Cup 4 Cup gluten free flour, and a bit more chocolate chips. They look and taste great!


I am a single gal, living on my own; currently working as an Occupational Therapist & living in Cumberland, MD. (It is "God's Country" out here...beautiful!) I LOVE to cook and bake, and love anything that looks, tastes, smells, or even closely resembles a veggie. I LOVE moo-cows, and therefore, cannot bring myself to eat any part of the adorable critters (i.e. NO RED MEAT!!) I love the outdoors, and pride myself on being the master griller on the fire pit. My mother's side of the family is 100% Polish, so I have an inborn passion for cooking...unfortunately, along with that comes a love of eating, too!! But, hey..u only live once, so I say "EAT, DRINK, and BE MERRY!!!"
