this is my all time favorite banana-nut muffins to make at home!...I use splenda instead of regular sugar and it still taste AMAZING thank you for this great recipe!!
This recipe was wonderful, I cut back on the sugar and added the maple syrup and a dash of freshly grated cinnamon stick and also 2 tblsp sour cream for added moisture and topped them with some finely crushed walnuts for appearance and they came out wonderful, a keeper for sure
So yummy! So easy! I used unbleached white whole wheat flour. I also used only 1/4 amount of sugar and added about 2T. pure maple syrup to the wet ingredients. Made mini muffins and the kids couldn't get enough! New family fave!
