Nice easy muffin to make, especially if you are watching what you are eating, since they are so low in fat! Good way to use up your over ripe bananas, Instead of whole wheat flour I use white whole wheat flour and it worked out just fine! Thank you for posting!!
These were good AND so easy to make! I used half whoel wheat/half oat flour, and didn't use the raisins (forgot to!). The wheat germ gave it a nutty flavor & I used applesauce for the oil. I used Splenda for the sugar & added just a little Splenda brown sugar. Thanks for sharing!
