    Fantastic! I used 3.5 bananas from the freezer and used brown sugar instead of white. These are delicious! ***Don't forget to add 2 eggs - they are missing from the list but are in the breakdown. I made these into 12 muffins.

    Going off the .17 eggs per serving, the recipe calls for 2 at least we know that they are included in the nutritional information. - 4/8/11

    Very Good
    I put in 2 eggs too, and used silicone muffin pans and they came out fine. Maybe I'll add some vanilla next time, or walnuts or (gasp) chocolate chips! - 12/15/09
