    I can honestly say I have loved every Ina Garten recipe I have ever tried but sadly this is a first thumbs down for me. I'm not worried about the amount of sugar in a recipe as long as it adds to the flavor and texture but these were just so excessively sweet that they were hard to enjoy. There were good points though- I loved the addition of granola and banana chips on top and would use them in another recipe. I wouldn't use the fresh diced banana again but that is just a personal textural preference.

    Half the recipe yielded 12 "regular" muffins. Mixing the batter by hand worked fine. I used white whole wheat four instead of all-purpose and the muffin texture was great. The muffins were quite sweet but very good.

    Very tasty. Good texture with the mix-ins. Recipe made 24 small sized muffins, cooked for approx 21 min.

    These muffins are so good! Left out the nuts- the diced banana, granola and coconut added to batter was plenty- and added banana chips to the tops which gave them great crunch.

    The flavour on these muffins is delicious with all the little tidbits that go into them. The are quite delicate though, and a little sticky form the sugar so I would definitely say you have to go with a lined muffin tin. A bit higher calorie than some other muffins but definitely a good result.
