Reviews on Banana Macadamia Nut Muffins
Great recipe, easy and I can't believe there's no butter or oil. I made them without patty pans, just in a greased muffin tray and they popped straight out when cooked. Maybe you could let people know in case they opt out because they can't find the patty pans! Also used normal self raising flour, turned out fine. Thanks! - Alex, Australia

Banana Oatmeal Muffins
Usually my muffins don't turn out that well, but these were AMAZING!. So soft and fluffy, and VERY yummy. Only problem now is that I have eaten too many :-)

Easy Banana Bread
Great recipe! I had two ripe bananas at home and wanted to use them right away, so I searched for ideas on the Internet. I found this recipe and decided to give it a try. Since I only had two bananas, I used only half of every ingredient (I added a dash of cinnamon) and baked it
for half the time, too! It was so delicious!
Jay, December 2011
Definitely easy, fast, moist and delumptious! Thank you
Virginia, December 2011
Lovely site I must say! when i found this recipe I thought "this is too good to be true", when I saw the comments I was like "yeah right, these are so not real". But I tried this recipe and trust me, I have NO regrets! awesome!!!! If you don't have baking soda, like I did, use two teaspoons of baking powder

Thank you for posting this recipe. The best banana bread recipe ever. My kids loved it and my work colleague loved it too. I can just eat the whole lot myself. So easy to make as well.

Love it! Cant believe how easy it was and what a beautiful cake it makes! Easy enough for my kids to do and so professional looking and tasting! Even our fussiest banana bread lover loved it!! VERY impressed!! A++++
Daggy Shaggs, February 2011
Excellent! This would have to be the most delicious and moist banana cake ever! I used wholemeal flour instead and it was still unbelievably moist. Also, I baked it for 50 mins instead, then left to cool and that helped make it more moist yet not undercooked. This has now become a firm family favourite, thankyou!.

Buttery Banana Cookies
I'm a 12 year old girl who just loves cooking and I was trying to find an easy banana cookie recipe.. And then I found this! I added some chocolate chips just to make it taste better, but it already tasted amazing. It was all gone in 1 day! Thanks a lot.
Lisa, December 2011
This might be my new favorite recipe! Plain, they are like mini, takealong banana bread bites! Delicious! Then I got creative, and dipped them in semisweet chocolate, then pressed a walnut on top and now they are an
elegant cookie! I wowed my friends at our cookie exchange this year, but little did they know how simple it was! Thank you for the best kept secret I'll ever have in my kitchen!
