This is a fantastic recipe! We didn't care much for the idea of raisins in muffins...so instead i added dried apricots and dates. I also make my own brown sugar.Then, in addition to the spices I added 1/2 a teaspoon of vanilla extract. These muffins were very moist and not too sweet...but not bland either.
I made these this week, also found them very tasty and moist. But, I divided the batter in half, adding a handful of chocolate chips (semisweet) to one and a small (1 oz.) box of raisins to the other, since my husband does not care for raisins. Otherwise, I followed the recipe closely, except for using 1% milk since it's what we buy. They were done in 18 minutes. I froze what was left (4 of each kind) to have for breakfast later.
I have tried about a dozen banana bran recipes and this is definitely the best! The spices give it a good flavor, it has great texture and is moist.
Awesome banana muffins. My family loves these they are not overly sweet with only 1/4 cup of brown sugar the banana gives them an extra bit of sweetness, I used very ripe bananas. I used 1% milk and great idea to let the cereal sit for 5 minutes. I didnt add the raisins as we dont care for them in muffins. The cinnamon and nutmeg are a wonderful addition. Next time I want to try adding 1/2 whole wheat flour see how that turns out. Mine baked in 18 minutes and I got 12 meduim sized muffins. Made for PAC fall 09. Thanks for sharing this recipe its one I will be making again.
