Your thoughts…

  1. I LOVE banana muffins! I’ve not tried it with a bit of nutmeg so I should try that next time. I usually use a bit of maple syrup and throw in some choc sprinkles or walnuts for a change. Nutella is a fantastic idea.

  2. Hi Nora,

    Thank you for the comment.
    I love maple syrup, never tried it with banana muffins but it sounds like a very good idea.
    I made also muffins with walnuts and chocolate chips, please check out this recipe: “Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins”

  4. I’m a sucker for anything that has to do with banana except banana jam. Haven’t got the courage to try it out yet.

    I did a banana chocolate cake not too long ago. :)
