We love these! I too added a teaspoon of vanilla. I use less sugar since the bananas were very ripe. Didn't have the flax or wheat germ so I opted to use an equal amount of the oats (totaling 1 cup of oats). Due to allergies I had to omit the walnuts. Our new favourite :)

These are really good! I added a teaspoon of vanilla (couldn't help myself!), the chocolate chips I used were just regular sized, and the oil I used was lemon olive oil. Otherwise, I followed the recipe. These baked for exactly 25 minutes, and I got 16 muffins. I'd imagine that rather than the mayonnaise that you could use yogurt or sour cream, and next time I'll try white whole wheat flour. These are ingredients I always have on hand, so whenever I have ripe bananas, I now have several healthy muffins to choose from. Thank you so much, Happy Mama.

This was a great recipe! I made it a bit healthier by using fat free yogurt for the mayo, whole wheat flour, only 1/2 cup of sugar and applesauce in place of the oil. I also added vanilla. Turned out wonderful and moist. My husband and daughter devoured them!

This is a delicious cupcake recipie! I substituted flax and oats with corn flour and pecans instead of walnuts because I had none ??DELICIOUS!
