Recipe Comments & Reviews

I followed the recipe as is and I thought the muffins were too dry... I won't be using this recipe again.
I have been making these muffins for years and still just love them. I get asked for this recipe every time I bring them somewhere.
My husband is my biggest fan when I make these muffins.
They always turn out super every time. I would highly recommend them to anyone that loves muffins.
I made these for my daughter's breakfast...I don't even like bananas, but I think they are excellent. They domed nicely and are very moist.
I just replaced the all-purpose flour with whole wheat flour and they came out delicious. Everyone who has tasted these are suprised how good they taste when I tell them the ingredients.
I make this recipe weekly. Perfect for kids school lunches. Gets gobbled up every time!
Delicious! I was surprised how good these muffins were especially since they contain whole wheat flour. My family really enjoyed them & they are the best banana muffins I have made yet.!
These muffins were great! I made no changes to the recipe. They were a hit with my boys and will be a keeper for my files.
Got up at 7am and made these for a quick and easy breakfast. Deliciously awesome is all I can say. The cooking time was a wee bit shorter for me at about 12-15 minutes. Overall though, a healthy and hearty breakfast. Thanks Land of Lakes!
This was a very easy recipe. They were the best muffins i have baked thus far. I would recommend this recipe to everyone! Delicious!
This recipe is quick and easy enough to make before going in to the office. It is a favorite of mine and has been used countless time. The chocolate is perfect with the bananas, and sometimes I add chopped nuts to the recipe to give them some extra crunch.
I've made this many times. It's handy to freeze really ripe
bananas to thaw and mash when you need them. I make
them in mini bundt silicone pans, remove them while they're
warm, and drop exactly 5 milk chocolate chips in the hole in
the top. As soon as I've filled them I go back to the first one
and spread the now melted chocolate using a toothpick.
Everyone loves that little surprise.
