I made it like a cake with chopped almonds on top and it turned out pretty well. Though the banana taste cannot be felt.

I might use a suggestion from below if I made them again, they were pretty bland.

Bland. Add chocolate chips or nuts to increase the taste.

I do think this recipe calls for more sugar if you are using baking coco that isn't sweetened. I tried it with Stevia and it was GREAT and I used coconut milk instead of buttermilk. They were gone at my house within a day and I have toddlers for children (so they define the word picky). I also added a tbsp more flour and used a little less milk as I live at a higher altitude and that seems to effect my baking.

This was a horrible tasting muffin. And such a waste of ingredients. The batter tasted I should have known. The muffins turned out weirdly shiny and flat, and had a chewy texture. I even checked my ingredients a few times to see if I missed something.
