World's Best (and easiest!) Banana Nut Muffins

Buster began cooking as a wee pup by watching his mother fix the kibble. He was hooked. He loves preparing—and writing about—food.

What You Need To Know Before You Start

There really are secrets to baking incredible muffins.

Read on. You're about to learn how to make the best (and easiest) homemade banana nut muffins you've ever tasted.

Alongside the directions, I explain the trick -- and there really is one -- that will help you to make the moistest muffins ever.

Freshly Baked Banana Nut Muffins


Ingredients and Equipment

You'll need two bowls -- one large, and one medium-sized. For the medium-sized one, I use my one-quart measuring cup. One large spoon. Your muffin tin. That's it!

The ingredients are divided into "wet" and "dry" -- the wet goes into one bowl, the dry into the other bowl:

WET INGREDIENTS (2 cups total):

2 ripe bananas (no, they don't need to be dark though if they're over-ripe, that's okay, too)

one egg

1/3 cup butter or margarine, melted

1 1/2 tsp. vanilla

2 tbsp. strong coffee (if you don't have leftover coffee, you can use water)

milk or buttermilk -- enough to make 2 cups TOTAL of wet ingredients (I think buttermilk is best)


1 1/2 cup of all-purpose flour

3/4 cup sugar

1 tsp. salt

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp. baking powder

Scroll to Continue

1/2 tsp. cinnamon

1/8 tsp. ground nutmeg

1 cup chopped pecans (or walnuts if you prefer -- I think pecans are the best)

DIRECTIONS are below the muffin tin information below!

Are You Still Using That Same Old Muffin Tin?

Uh, yeah, I am.

I bought the Farberware Muffin Tin more than 20 years ago, and it still works like a charm. The muffins come out easily and it washes up quickly.

Best part? It's inexpensive.

Now that's what I like!

How To Make Incredible Muffins

The trick (and there really is a trick) to making incredible muffins has to do with the mixing part. Read all of these directions through first, before you start doing anything.

First, preheat the oven to 350. Preheating is important.

In the SMALLER bowl, put all of your wet ingredients -- make sure you mash your bananas thoroughly with a fork. Then use that same fork to completely stir in the egg and other wet ingredients.

In the LARGER bowl, put all of your dry ingredients and mix them with your large spoon. Make sure your ingredients are fully incorporated -- that is, you want the baking powder/soda to be completely distributed through the flour.

Now here's the part nobody seems to point out: add your wet ingredients to your dry ones -- and fold them carefully with a few swift strokes. This is incredibly important. DON'T OVERMIX! There will even be places where the flour is still dry. I fold about 12 - 14 times -- carefully -- but the mixture will look lumpy and "not quite" fully mixed together. This is the way they're supposed to look.

If you mix it till it is the consistency of cake batter, you've gone too far and you'll end up with simply average muffins. Yeah, they'll still be good... but this recipe is for making *incredible* muffins.


Final Steps

Spray your muffin tin with cooking oil spray. If you don't have any, you can grease them lightly with softened butter or shortening.

Spoon the (lumpy) batter into the muffin tin -- it's okay if you end up filling the holes all the way to the top. Don't pack the batter -- just spoon it into the muffin tin.

Sprinkle sugar on the tops -- don't be shy! This sugar will make a glaze as they bake that is really fantastic.

Spray the sugar with cooking spray (this step isn't completely necessary -- but I think it makes the tops of the muffins look even better.)

Put them into your already preheated oven and set the timer for 20 minutes.

After 20 minutes, check the muffins with a toothpick -- does the toothpick come out clean? If so, they're ready to come out of the oven.

You may need to bake them for another 5 minutes. Ovens differ -- you'll know when they're done. They'll look fantastic!

Let them cool for about 5 minutes, then use a fork to carefully lift them out of the muffin tin. You can keep the muffins in the tin for 10 minutes so they'll stay warm (they really are best fresh out of the oven) -- but don't let them become cool while still in the tin -- they become difficult to get out.

That's all there is to it. Your loved ones will rave about these moist, perfect muffins!

Fresh muffins, still in the tin


What Could Be Better Than Freshly Baked Banana Nut Muffins?


What To Do With Leftover Muffins

Leftover muffins? (It's rare... but it happens.)

Wrap them in a paper towel and pop them in the microwave for about 20 seconds. They taste as if they were just pulled from the oven.

Hi QueenJen!

Thanks so much for letting me know! This has been one of my Go To recipes as long as I can remember. I make them all the time.

You've made my day!


QueenJen on February 17, 2015:

I have this recipe bookmarked. I make these muffins just about every time I have overripe bananas. They're fantastic. My family loves them and my friends do too. I add a cup of coconut flakes and they're amazing. I just made them for some friends in Park City Utah. I adjusted the recipe for the high altitude (over 6,000 feet) by using 1/4 teaspoons of baking powder and baking soda and they came out perfect. I signed up with this website just so that I could post a comment because this recipe is easy and delicious and I wanted to say thanks :)

SHEENA on October 20, 2013:

I made the muffins and they were SOOOO good. The only thing I didn't use was the coffee and sugar on top but I will try that next time I make them.. Thanks for posting ;-)

Marina Glad on July 16, 2013:

Thank you so much for sharing this recipe. Quite interesting and simple. Just tried the first muffin and ...i'm in heaven...light, coffee/cinnamon aftertaste. Great tip not to mix it too much!

Light/fluffy + pecans crunch ...yummy!!!

HAnn1027 on June 03, 2013:

This is the best banana nut recipe! Thanks for sharing it.

Buster Bucks (author) from Sonoma County, California on April 16, 2013:

Hi Chabias,

Thanks for your nice note -- you've made my day!


chabias on April 16, 2013:

Hi Buster! I came here to find a recipe of yours that I misplaced (Coconut Shortbread Cookie), and found this recipe. Your muffins looks awesome, and I look forward to trying these too! You always give such detailed instructions, and have a great sense of humor. Thanks!

Karen Robiscoe from California on April 08, 2013:

I am finishing a banana in the raw even as I read, and now feel a certain amount of "muffin envy". It looks to be a delicious and well designed recipe! :)

Buster Bucks (author) from Sonoma County, California on January 31, 2013:

Hi Suzie,

I haven't tried it in a loaf pan but I believe it would work. Begin checking it (use a toothpick to verify doneness) after about 25 minutes.

Let me know how it turns out!


Suzie on January 31, 2013:

Have you ever made banana bread in a loaf pan out of this recipe?

Buster Bucks (author) from Sonoma County, California on January 09, 2013:

Hi Mardiana,

I always use salted butter for these muffins. If you're concerned about salt, you can slightly decrease the amount called for in the recipe.

I hope you enjoy your muffins!


Mardiana on January 09, 2013:

Hi, can I use salted butter? Do I need to reduce the salt if I use salted butter? I don't want the muffin to become too salty when they are done. I've had this experience before with other recipes.

Kimber on November 05, 2012:

These are the best muffins!! I have to make double batches just to keep them around more than a day!

Buster Bucks (author) from Sonoma County, California on September 15, 2012:

Hi Nancy,

I'm glad this recipe warranted your first review! Your kind comments have made my day.


Nancy on September 15, 2012:

This is the first time that I have reviewed a recipe....and I made these

wonderful muffins today. They were out of this world good. I will

definitely make these again. Kudo' were right when

you said not to mix together too much. I think that has been one of

my problems in the past. These were the best.....Thank

You for sharing.

cashmere from India on August 25, 2012:

What luck I have two rather ripe bananas at hand...guess what's going to happen to them now! :)

Buster Bucks (author) from Sonoma County, California on August 20, 2012:

Hi Rachel,

I'm glad the instructions were helpful. Thanks for taking the time to write!

Best regards,


Rachel on August 20, 2012:

Oh man, these are soooo good! Thanks for all the baking tips also, they really helped!

Johanna Minich on August 11, 2012:

I added chocolate chips because I was feeling decadent. These were absolutely the best muffins ever! Ever!

Buster Bucks (author) from Sonoma County, California on June 28, 2012:

Thanks, Riane!

rlane on June 28, 2012:

These ARE the absolute best banana nut muffins ever! After making them one time, my husband doesn’t touch the bananas now, hoping they will go so ripe I have to use them to make the muffins! Thanks for the recipe and instructions!!

Buster Bucks (author) from Sonoma County, California on May 23, 2012:

Hi Brittany,

Sure, I think ginger would make a fantastic substitution. I'm so glad to hear you've made this recipe several times. That's the best compliment of all!


Brittany on May 23, 2012:

My favorite muffins ever! You really can't find a better recipe. This is my third time making them, and after starting to mix all my dry ingredients I realized I didn't have any nutmeg - I had to use ginger instead, and I think I might even like them better! Thanks for the recipe :)

laura on May 03, 2012:

omg SOOOO delicious!! on 6 of them i added crumb topping,oh and mini chocolate chips :) i'm gonna try this exact recipe using pumpkin...hope they come out as good! thx for the recipe, mine are all packed somewhere lol

Buster Bucks (author) from Sonoma County, California on May 01, 2012:

Hi Cracker,

This recipe makes a dozen muffins. Enjoy!


cracker on May 01, 2012:

how many muffins does this make

Buster Bucks (author) from Sonoma County, California on April 15, 2012:

Hi Harmony,

Glad you bookmarked the recipe. Enjoy your muffins!


Harmony on April 15, 2012:

TOTALLY just bookmarked this recipe and they're in the oven NOW!!! Thank you ; )

Katie & Tyler on February 26, 2012:

hey there! we were just looking online to find a banana nut muffin recipe & we stumbled across your recipe but-- we didn't have vanilla, so we added brown sugar with the white sugar... two eggs instead of one because we didn't have baking powder... & hazelnut creamer with the milk...GREAT recipe thank you so much we worked with what we had layin around in the kitchen haha... woodle

Carrie on February 26, 2012:

Yumm Yumm Yumm! The only change I made was to toast the nuts first, and I used big Texas muffin tins, so I doubled this recipe! Thanks so much for posting this!

Buster Bucks (author) from Sonoma County, California on February 23, 2012:

Hi Bonnie,

Thanks so much for your kind comments!

Best regards,


Bonnie on February 22, 2012:

I've been baking a very long time, and these are the best banana muffins I've tasted, also the easiest to make. Kudos to the person who developed the recipe, and thank you for being so generous as to post it on-line.

Buster Bucks (author) from Sonoma County, California on January 28, 2012:

Hi Juel,

Yes, you can leave out the nuts and they're still be fantastic muffins.

Good luck!


Juel on January 28, 2012:

One questions before I trying making them...Can I leave out the nuts? My son is allergic.

Buster Bucks (author) from Sonoma County, California on January 10, 2012:

Hi OrchidBarbara,

Thanks so much for your kind comments!

Warmest regards,


OrchidBarbara on January 10, 2012:

Ok... I have tried numerous banana muffin recipes and I have to admit this one wins hands down. It is light, fluffy, just the right amount of sweet and buttery. And it is not so rich as to be beyond the bounds of my 1500 calorie diet. Thank You!

Buster Bucks (author) from Sonoma County, California on January 07, 2012:

Hi Nickie,

Your comment really made my day! Learning to bake isn't easy -- so don't be too hard on yourself.


... And don't lose the recipe.


Warmest regards,


Nickie on January 07, 2012:

Thank you so much for this... The biggest joke in my family is I cant cook. My husband tasted these and just looked at me and said they were awesome... I only have a few left and the family is asking for more... Thanks so much the details were easy to follow for a non seasoned baker.. LOL My husband told me not to loose this receipe. Ha Thanks again...

Buster Bucks (author) from Sonoma County, California on December 18, 2011:

Hi jkean,

Glad to hear your "boys" enjoy these muffins!


I think white chocolate would make a fantastic addition.

Best regards,


Jkean on December 18, 2011:

I have made these twice now...little boys who don't enjoy bananas but lovvvve your banana nut muffins! The only thing that I add is white chocolate. BTW my little boys are full grown. Thanks so much these ARE the best.

Buster Bucks (author) from Sonoma County, California on December 14, 2011:

Hi Lisa,

Yes, these would be great with coconut and macadamia nuts.

I'm glad you enjoyed the muffins. Thanks for taking the time to write.


Lisa on December 14, 2011:

i used eggnog in place of the coffee and whole wheat flour..delicious!..i bet these would be fantastic with macadamia nuts and coconut

Elizabeth on December 02, 2011:

Just made these and omg they are delicious. So moist and flavorful. When they came out the oven I claimed mine by cracking open the top and sliding a little pat of butter in there to melt from the steam. So good!

Mel on November 29, 2011:

I was a little skeptical, but this is as easy as it sounded, and as good as stated! Keeper recipe, thanks!

Buster Bucks (author) from Sonoma County, California on November 04, 2011:

Hi Rae,

Your additions sound great! I'm glad you enjoyed the recipe.

Best regards,


Rae on November 04, 2011:

Great recipe, the muffins are so tasty. I added in some Muscavado sugar in place of the coffee and added a little peanut butter to the melted butter to make it a little more nutty ^-^

Buster Bucks (author) from Sonoma County, California on October 12, 2011:

Hi Ash,

I'm so glad you took the time to tell me how much you're enjoying them. I make them all the time. As you can see from the comments, they're a big success!

Thanks for writing --


ash on October 12, 2011:

These are amazing! I read some of the comments first to make sure it was a good recipe- and I just wanted to add to the list. Other recipes I've tried are too dry and bland. These have great flavor (even though I used the water instead of coffee), the right amount of sweetness, and are perfectly moist. I was just going to have 1 to taste them...but I've already had 2!

Thanks for the recipe!

Buster Bucks (author) from Sonoma County, California on October 09, 2011:

Hi Shilpa,

Thanks for telling me about your success! This recipe really does make knock-out muffins.

Best regards,


Shilpa on October 08, 2011:

Made it today. My hubby said it was the best banana nut muffin he has ever had. :-) I didn't have coffee prepared so i used little bit of cocoa powder instead. Thanks for the detailed recipe

Donna Waggoner on October 05, 2011:

Mine are in the oven --I didn't realize that it's only for 12-- I assumed it's for 24---dah me..that's why I didn't have enough to make it thru, anyhoooo, thank you in advance for your details..while let you know

Buster Bucks (author) from Sonoma County, California on September 29, 2011:

Hi Amy,

Thanks for your wonderful comments. You've made my day!


Amy on September 29, 2011:

I have never been so happy with a recipe that I've commented on it! Let me just say the search is over! I've finally found a banana nut muffin recipe that isn't kinda blah! The coffee I used was a lightly flavored coffee that had a kinda sweet nutty flavor that went well with the other ingredients. Also, I used oversized muffin tins and increased baking time to 35 minutes. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Buster Bucks (author) from Sonoma County, California on September 27, 2011:

Buster Bucks (author) from Sonoma County, California on September 07, 2011:

Hi Ruth,

Thanks so much for taking the time to let me know about the success of the recipe for you and your family.

I'm like you -- these muffins are best with the nuts.


Best regards,


Ruth on September 07, 2011:

My family LOVES this recipe. I plan to share it. I have to really chop the nuts because my daughter says she does not like them but I do. :)

Buster Bucks (author) from Sonoma County, California on August 28, 2011:

Hi Sam,

This recipe really does make incredibly moist muffins.

Thanks for your kind comments!

Best regards,


Sam on August 28, 2011:

I've been making Banana Nut muffins for years, and I gave this recipe a shot just to try something different. It is, in fact, the best Banana Nut muffin recipe I have ever used - the result is so flavorful and moist - I will never go back to my old recipe. Thank you for sharing - it is much appreciated.

Buster Bucks (author) from Sonoma County, California on August 26, 2011:

Hi Samidel,

Your message has made my day!

Best regards,


Samidel on August 26, 2011:

I love this recipe!!! Thanks so much! Even my 9 yr old picky eater enjoyed! :)

Buster Bucks (author) from Sonoma County, California on August 25, 2011:

Hi Kelly,

I think the coffee gives the spices a boost.


However, if you don't have coffee available, then water is perfectly fine as a substitute.

I hope you enjoy your muffins!

Best regards,


Kelly on August 25, 2011:

Thanks so much for taking the time to explain the recipe. The bananas getting mashed by my 94 year-old grandma as I write. Can you explain the use of the coffee? That ingredient surprised me! :) Kelly

Buster Bucks (author) from Sonoma County, California on August 17, 2011:

Hi kraftystue,

The recipes makes a dozen muffins. Let me know how that raw sugar works out!

Thanks for taking the time to write.

Best regards,


kraftystue on August 16, 2011:

this looks grrrrrrreat!!! I think I'll sprinkle "sugar in the raw" for extra crunch!

P.S. how many muffins dose this make????

Buster Bucks (author) from Sonoma County, California on August 02, 2011:

Hi dobo700,

Good luck with the muffins this weekend. Thanks for taking the time to write.

Best regards,


dobo700 from Australia on August 01, 2011:

Thanks you so much for the wonderful recipe! I will give this a go this weekend and let you know how it goes.

Buster Bucks (author) from Sonoma County, California on July 22, 2011:

Hi Rafiel,

I think your customers will be very happy with this muffin recipe. Thanks for taking the time to write!

Best regards,


rafiel on July 21, 2011:

This recipe sounded great so I am making them now to serve at my little coffee shop tomorrow morning. Just got them into the oven!

Buster Bucks (author) from Sonoma County, California on July 05, 2011:

Hi Lynn,

Yes, I'd love your mother's recipe! I'm always trying new things in the kitchen. It's my favorite hobby.

The blueberry muffin recipe I'm trying to work out uses buttermilk, and butter.



Lynn on July 04, 2011:

I LOVE blueberries and blueberry muffins! I use my late mother's recipe which is very old. Butter and buttermilk in it, a very good recipe if you want to try it. Lynn

Buster Bucks (author) from Sonoma County, California on July 04, 2011:

Hi Lynn,

I go by "Buster" on my hubpages, so no problem. Our dogs are a part of the family, as any pet owner knows.


Please do click around and read some of my other hubs. I'm working on a new blueberry muffin recipe, which I hope to publish in the next few days.

Best regards,


Lynn on July 04, 2011:

Hi Buster,

And now that I checked out your Hubpages and see I am calling you by your dog's name, I feel a little funny!But if you love your dog as much as I love mine and all my animals, then that's probably ok. As a matter of fact, she just got a bite of the banana nut muffins I just made and we both agree they are STUPENDOUS! No trouble getting them out of my pan, I think I'll just bring mine to school tomorrow to bake them in. I'm glad I came across your page, have to check out the rest.


Buster Bucks (author) from Sonoma County, California on July 03, 2011:

Hi Lynn,

Two possible solutions for the problem of getting muffins out of the tin:

1. Did you wait too long? I think muffins should be removed from the tin after about 5 -- 10 minutes (though they do need that "settling" period.) If you wait till they've cooled, they become really difficult to get out.

2. Yes, it could be old pans. If so, then I think your idea of greasing and flouring the muffin tins is definitely the way to go.

Feel free to write again if you have more questions. Good luck with your muffins!

Best regards,


Lynn on July 03, 2011:

Thanks Buster! Actually, we are making them for a staff lunch Tuesday and since we're off Monday, I was going to make them at home and bring them in. Then I found your recipe. I think I'll make some later today for us at home and then make the ones for the staff lunch Tuesday as you suggest. Can't wait to try them. One more question: last time we made cupcakes for a staff lunch, we sprayed with Pam and they were still hard to get out. It's possible it was the old pans, but I'm wondering if it would be better to grease with shortening or butter or stick to Pam? Thanks. Lynn

Buster Bucks (author) from Sonoma County, California on July 03, 2011:

Hi Lynn,

Like you, I think homemade cakes taste better the next day. However, muffins are at their peak fresh from the oven.

If it is at all possible to make the muffins right before work so you can take them in while they're warm, you'll have the tastiest muffin possible. However, they're still good the following day, though the texture isn't quite as light, and the tops will no longer be crunchy.

Good luck with your muffins, and thanks so much for writing to me.

Best regards,


Lynn on July 03, 2011:

I just found this recipe and need to ask a question. I am going to make them for work and normally I would make them the day before because I have found with my cake and muffin recipes, they get moister and taste better the next day. This recipe says they are best right out of the oven. So which way should I do it??

Buster Bucks (author) from Sonoma County, California on June 15, 2011:

Hi Christian,

I loved your note! I started cooking when I was really young, too. I'm glad you liked the muffin recipe.

Thanks so much for taking the time to write. You've made my day.

Best regards,


christian on June 15, 2011:


i was always trying to find homemade muffin recipes, i dont think the box one are good, but i have always gotten recipes that turn out gross looking and average. Yours was by far the best homemade recipie for muffins i have ever made. i am a young cook, 13 years old, trying become a great cook by just practicing off of others peoples recipes from what they found where good. Thanks again for the recipie.


Buster Bucks (author) from Sonoma County, California on June 12, 2011:

Hi Kate,

The best part of baking something yummy is sharing them with friends and neighbors.

Thanks for taking the time to write. I'm glad your muffins were a hit.

Best regards,


Kate on June 12, 2011:

Just made these and shared them with my neighbor. Fantastic recipe - thanks!

Buster Bucks (author) from Sonoma County, California on May 20, 2011:

Hi Lin,

I hope those muffins turned out great for you! I think that chocolate chips are a great addition.

Best regards,


Lin on May 20, 2011:

just popped these into the oven and have to admit I can't wait to taste! i doubled the recipe because i had 4 overripe bananas and had already made banana biscotti which was good but my family wanted muffins this time. I didn't want to make typical banana muffins and the strong coffee ingredient sounded good. I didn't have 2 cups of nuts so i added 1 cup of nuts and 1 cup of chocolate chips. Coffee, cinnamon, chocolate and banana...I think it's a winner even before tasting! Thanks for being detailed of how to mix ingredients, etc.

Sam on May 01, 2011:

Thank you so much for the detailed instruction. I have tried many recipes but nobody ever makes an attempt to point the finer points in baking and you DID IT!!! every art is all about mastering these subtle things and because of you I dint have to go to a baking class to learn :-) HATS OFF !

I wonder if I can replace Ener G egg replacer as a substitute for eggs and reduce the sugar quantity to make it more healthy.

This time around I did replace it with oil and added flax seed. The finicky eater - my hubby came for seconds, thirds...... need I say anything else :-)

Buster Bucks (author) from Sonoma County, California on April 27, 2011:

Hi Crystal,

So glad you enjoyed the recipe! Thanks for taking the time to write to me.

Warmest regards,


Crystal Gracia on April 25, 2011:

I just saw your recipe yesterday.. & tried it today..

OMG they really are the best!!!

& the step by step you gave was soo helpful.

Very easy to follow..

Thank You!

Buster Bucks (author) from Sonoma County, California on April 22, 2011:

Hi Monica,

First, I'm so glad you're enjoying this recipe!

Yes, you'd use the same recipe to make strawberry muffins. However, after you (very lightly) mash the strawberries, you'll want to pour off any juice that has accumulated. A *little* juice is fine, but if you have a lot (like with very fresh strawberries, or those that have become slightly soft) you'll end up with pink muffins... which might not be so bad! ... but I think I prefer seeing bits of strawberries inside of standard-colored muffins. Good luck, and Happy Easter!


Monica on April 22, 2011:

Hi There,

I posted a couple of months and I wanted you to know that this has become my "go-to" banana muffin recipe. Everybody loves them! I've made them just as listed here and with chocolate chips and each time they're perfect. Just wondering, would you suggest following the same procedure above for strawberry muffins? I've never tried making them, and wanted to try something different for Easter. Any suggestions (or do you have a recipe)? Thanks!

Happy baker on March 28, 2011:

Thank you for sharing.... they are fantastic!

Christie on March 20, 2011:

I am making these as i type... just tasted the batter... YUMMM!!

Buster Bucks (author) from Sonoma County, California on March 19, 2011:

Hi Ireen,

I think I prefer using 2 bananas, too. They provide more banana flavor, of course, but I think the muffins are moister, too.

Thanks so much for taking the time to write!


Ireen on March 18, 2011:

Thank you so much for the awesome recipe. I made this twice this week. I used 2 bananas on the first batch, and only 1 on the second (because I'm out of bananas). I prefer the 1st batch...but either way, you're right! No leftover! Again, thanks!

Buster Bucks (author) from Sonoma County, California on March 13, 2011:

Hi Deja,

I had to laugh when reading your comment. No offense is intended, of course... but you haven't made this recipe.

When you use the recipe as written above, then drop me a note. I'd love to hear from you!

Best regards,


Deja on March 13, 2011:

Well, I made quite a few substitutions: 1 tablespoon of vanilla, 4 bananas, 1/2 c brown sugar, a little orange zest, 1 1/2 c walnuts, added another 1/2 c of flour, left out the nutmeg, and a bit of applesauce.

They turned out alright- I think I need to wait until my bananas are over-ripe and try again, although the texture, etc. is right on spot.

katie on March 12, 2011:

thanks sooo much they turned out DELICIOUS!!!! My picky 5 year old sister LOVED them!! :)

azure_sky from Somewhere on the Beach, if I am lucky :) on March 01, 2011:

Love your hubs...even though they are making my stomach growl:) Guess that I will have your fluffy pancakes tonight and make your awesome Banana Muffins in the morning:)

Kimi on February 21, 2011:

You have got to be kidding!!! INSANE, yumtastic and -dare I say- MAN CATHING level of scrumptious!!!! THANK YOU TIMES A TRILLION! Can you tell I liked them???

tee hee hee

I consider myself an averagely talented baker. Single guy,so nuff said. I thought what the hell, this recipe seems pretty standard. The spraying of the pam was what MADE it, nice finish. Used toasted Grenoble walnuts, it rocked. Has some friends over for coffee, and guess what? not a single muffin left. Thanks!!

I was so excited to make your muffins. I followed your instructions to a tee. I added the wet ingredients to the dry and realized I had not mixed the dry! Ugh! So I had to fold a few more times. However, you are right, they are scrumptious. My college kids came home and loved them. I am going to make another batch and remember to mix the dry! Thanks for great recipe!
