    Muffin Goddess's Note:

    This is my adaptation of a recipe I found in the April 2002 issue of the now-defunct BHG Hometown Cooking magazine. They disappear almost instantly whenever I make them. I like them because the fruit isn't mashed and incorporated into the batter as it is in most banana recipes.

      DIVINE! These were SO good - don't look for another recipe, just make these. You won't be sorry! We don't have cinnamon chips in Canada (least I've never seen them), so I used peanut butter chips and a sprinkle of cinnamon, and wow, was this so good! I'm very glad I'm taking this somewhere tonight, or my husband and I might have sat down and ate it for dinner! Thanks, teammie, for such a great recipe! Made for ZWT5.

      5 stars! Delicious and unique. I used the almonds only for the top crust. Great combination of flavors and textures. Thanks for posting the recipe.

      Very tasty. I followed some of the other poster's suggestions and added cinnamon to the oat mixture, and had to use a combination of chocolate and peanut butter chips (all I had!). It tastes great, although the topping is quite crumbly, so they can't really be eaten by hand - a spoon works much better. Thanks for a great new recipe for bananas!
