    I thought they were wonderful and I'm not a huge fan of bananas. Didn't have muffin pans (we r packing for a move) so I just sprayed a 9 x 13 pan and poured the batter in there and cut into 16 servings. They came out very easily and tasted great. Will def make again... and highly recommend. - 6/11/09

    These are good for the calories, but I had a few problems with them. First, they stuck badly to the paper liners - next time I'll use PAM. Secondly, they need some salt. When I added a little salted butter to one the other night, it greatly improved the taste. Next time I'll add salt. - 11/17/07

    these turned out awesome! and it's the easiest recipe....mix everything together and bake! i made this both as a 9x13 cake, and 16 muffins. i sprayed the baking dish(es) and they turned out great. my only sub was 1/2 C. raw sugar in place of splenda, i don't care for artificial sweeteners. - 8/24/09

    I used Reynold's foil liners and these released perfectly. Good flavor, but a little tough/more firm than "regular muffins" (to be expected in low fat/no sugar added baked items) They pack well in a lunch bag! I will be making these often! - 4/22/09
