Yes, these were very dense, a bit dry, even using a whole egg. The taste was very good. I used raisins and cranberries, and a little bit of slivered almonds. The reduced sugar recipe was much appreciated!
very dense. didnt put in nutmeg (had none), no raisins (personal preference), left the bananas in some chunks, added ~1/4c brown sugar (trader joes), added extra cinnamon, 1 egg instead of 2 egg whites. out of the oven, it's just okay, i think it really needs the raisins, but i dont like raisins.
really great muffins! No raisins in the house, but chocolate chips worked just fine.
Pretty good after I changed the temp. Recipie says 425 for 18-25 minutes. It didn't sound right to me. My experience with baking is that pretty much everything ideally bakes at 350 but I followed the recipie. After 18 mins, muffins were way over done, hard as a rock. I tried again at 350 for 25 minutes and they came out great. Yummy if your taste buds are used to bland, no sugar recipes. If you're used to eating sugar, you may not like these.
Very tasty because I wasn't expecting a desert muffin, but rather a healthy, breakfast type muffin. Personally, I love the taste of healthy food. I made a batch of these muffins today and the recipe yielded 16 muffins (baked muffin came to just the top of the paper muffin cup). The heat on this recipe is too high and my muffins burnt on the bottom and the tips on the top. The high temperature can lead to dryness. The key to sweetness in this recipe is using overripe bananas that have been frozen. Using frozen bananas also adds to the moisture. It's an ok muffin. I only baked 6 at one time to use as test muffins. Based on the outcome of those ones, I ended up making so many changes to the recipe to improve the next 10 that were popped into the oven that it ended up becoming its own recipe. I added it to the database.
These were great warmed up with a small amount of butter. I am trying to reduce sugar in my diet so I didn't add any extra sugar, and I find they are tasty, but definitely not very sweet. For half the recipe I used dried dates instead of raisins. The nutrition values on dates are almost identical to that of raisins in terms of sugars and fiber content. For the other half I used chopped pecans because I forgot to buy walnuts. I will definitely make these again.
This is fantastic! Moist on the inside, nice crunch on the outside... They freeze well, i thaw them in the fridge, and warm them up for 40 secs in the microwave in the morning. Great for a healthy breakfast or quick afternoon perk.
I added 1/4 cup of flax seed meal, and 2 cup of oatbran...and used cranberries instead.
This is a great recipe I used apple sauce instead of oil and wheat bran instead of oats because I couldn't find oat bran, I also added dried cranberries, raisins, apricots and figs and they were fabulous. I want to make them again with oat bran. =-)
Best healthiest muffins ever! If you had a sweet tooth you can add 1/4 cup brown sugar but they are great even without it. I like prunes a lot so I substituted the raisins once with the chopped prunes. Try that version you won't regret it. This is great, simple and healthy recipe! Both my hubby and 11 month old boy loved them.
Very good recipe, it was nice to have something that could be made so quickly. I did find that it only made 9 muffins, however they were fairly big. I added a 1/4 cup brown sugar as I didn't have any raisins in the house. Will try baking a batch and freezing them next time.
