Very moist and flavorful. You could really taste the avocados. I omitted the walnuts because I didn't have any and used brown sugar. I also made a streusel topping (1/2 cup brown sugar, 1/4 cup flour, 2 TBSP butter, 1 tsp cinnamon). Will absolutely make again!

The flavor is ok - nice and moist. The middle of my muffins were way too moist so I cooked them longer which made the outside/bottom of them over cook and stick to the muffin cups. Not thrilled with the recipe and probably wouldn't make again.

Delicious! I opted to use half brown sugar and half white sugar and since most banana muffins have a little spice I added 1 tsp. of cinnamon along with a couple heaping teaspoons of vanilla. These came out very moist and tasted so good my husband had no idea there was avocado in it - until he noticed the light green color... What's great about these muffins are the avocado takes the place of butter or oil yet they still have all the moistness and flavor you'd expect. I topped these with a little turbinado sugar for some added crunch and popped them in the oven. They baked up beautifully in exactly 20 minutes. I never baked with avocado before but now I'm going to!

Made this for a birthday breakfast and everyone loved it! Subbed almond milk for reg milk and omitted the walnuts.

I was going to rate this 4 stars as I thought they needed a little more flavor but after watching both my kids and my husband (a self-proclaimed avocado hater) go for a 2nd muffin immediately after eating their first - I couldn't put anything less than 5. Healthy and great texture - this is a keeper! We'll play around with some add-ins to see if I can get it perfect (for me anyways ;) )

Very moist and good eating My friends have all tried them and love them They have a unique taste . When I first made them I cut back on the sugar but I found that they seem to lack taste so now I follw the recipe (English Lass )

These muffins don't seem very sweet when they come out of the oven and are eaten warm. Oddly enough, they seem sweeter at room temp. I actually liked them better after they cooled.
