This is by far my favorite recipe for muffins. Love that this doesn't call for butter either, as I try to cut it out as much as I can. To make sure you get the best flavor and texture, you must use VERY ripe bananas. Anything else will leave these a little bland and drier than normal. Made as stated, they come out very moist and delicious.
