Banana Split Muffins

"Yum Banana Split in a muffin. I made adjustment to this recipe. The original recipe says to put the chocolate chip and pecans on top of the muffins before you bake them. I just felt it needed to be in the muffin. Then it states to add a cherry immediately after you remove it from the oven. I just couldn't see the cherry staying on top if I did that. So I've put it all inside the muffin. My only concern is that it may be to much chocolate so you may want to cut the chocolate chips down to 1/2 cup unless you are a serious chocolate lover. You can also leave out the pecans, if you like. But I hope you all enjoy!!"

    Made these for a bake sale at my office - they were all gone in a manner of minutes!! I only made 12 muffins out of the mix (but they were quite big). Didn't add nuts in case of allergies and added about 1/2 cup of mini chocolate chips. Also used low-fat mayo. Managed to buy one (so I could taste it) - WOW!!! Thanks Nikki! :)

    These moist muffins were wonderful. Lovely banana flavor, I used 1/4 cup chocolate chips, 1/4 cup halved cherries and no pecans. Thank you for sharing your lovely recipe. Made for What's on the Menu? tag game.

    A very good muffin and we really enjoyed them. The 4 star rating is strictly a preference in the amount of chocolate chips. We all felt they had too much chocolate. (I didn't think that was possible! :) Very moist. We'll make these again w/ 1/2 c chocolate chips.

    Wonderful muffins!! My only change was to use low-fat mayonnaise. Other than that, I made exactly as written. Very nice! Moist. Easy. I love all the stuff you can pack into these muffins! Thank you very much for sharing!
