  1. Delicious! Because it made so much I was able to make 12 large muffins and 12 mini ones. The mini ones were for my almost 2 year old grandson. I made 6 as posted, 6 with raisins and chopped walnuts and the 12 mini's were made with a semi-sweet chocolate piece on top or toasted shredded sweet coconut sprinkled on top. DD thought the posted ones needed some extra banana or sweetness added to them. She thought instead of the vanilla flavoring add some banana flavoring to it. My grandson loved the ones with the chocolate chips on top. Thanks for posting. :)
  2. WOW, what a great treat!!!! These muffins are one of the best banana muffins Ive ever made. They came out moist and fruity with such an intense vanilla and banana flavour! YUM!!!! :)<br/>I made half the recipe using my own self-made flour and all whole spelt. Also I reduced the sugar to 1 tbs as my banana was very sweet. Such a great recipe, that I will definitely make again.<br/>THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing it with us, Flower!<br/>Made and reviewed for Aussie/NZ Recipe Swap #47 December 2010.
  3. yummo. These were great banana muffins. really easy to make great way to use up leftover bananas Made for RECIPE SWAP #38 - March 2010 in Aust/NZ forum
  4. Very quick and easy to make. Into the oven in 5 minutes from start of prep time. My daughters really enjoyed these and they will be great to add to lunchboxes. I did make 12 large muffins...though should have made the mix do another couple instead of making them so large. I think my oven isn't distributing the heat evenly....and the muffins all rose with strange shaped tops. My daughters thought they were so funny...but didn't stop them enjoying th muffins. Pic posted (of the least strange looking muffin :lol: ) Using the mixer gave these muffins a very smoothe soft texture.
  5. What a super easy and not to mention delicious banana muffin recipe.. I made as directed except I added 3 banana's.. It took no time at all to throw together and they turned out very moist and full of flavour, without being overly sweet which we love.. I made mine in my texas muffin tin for super big muffins and some how I don't think they will make it much past tonight, if my men have there way.. I loved the hand mixer step never thought of that but it makes it so easy.. Thanks Chef floWer for a great recipe that was enjoyed by all.. :)
