It's not great but it has a good texture to it. I changed the recipe the second time around to use more fruit and give it a sweeter flavor.<br/><br/> I increased the Splenda to .5 cup and used 1.5 cups of dried mixed fruit bits instead of nuts. <br/>I tried pumpkin pie spice instead of the cinnamon, and added a tablespoon of homemade vanilla extract. The dense wheat bread has a good spring to it and held up well in some fancy muffin pans, and the spiced bread makes a good compliment to the super sweet fruit bits. I calculated these at 130 calories and 7 grams of protein.
this recipe is great :) my boyfriend is a bodybuilder and since its hard to make him food/snacks that are healthy, i went on a hunt to find the perfect thing to make him. I've made him these the past 3 years, twice a year, valentines day and christmas. he absolutely loves them!! i use the 4 scoops of whey protein also..and they are a great pre-workout/post-workout snack!
Just finished baking these DELICIOUS healthy muffins! I made a few adjustments, used whole wheat flour, Lite Silk instead of milk, teaspoon of vanilla extract, and one scoop each of my banana creme and vanilla protein powder. Otherwise, wonderful recipe! My mix made 18 muffins. I used those paper muffin sleeves, which stuck to the muffins, so I sprayed the last batch with Pam and hope they come off a bit cleaner! I am so glad to have found this recipe!!!
These were pretty good, health value considered. I halved the recipe, and got 8 muffins. I used sugar instead of splenda, chocolate chips instead of nuts, and a little more cinnamon then called for. I used the new robin hood nutri flour for the flour for some fibre.
I made 36 muffins, did the first batch and liked them so I made 2 more batches. I did use 1/4 c regular sugar as these are for a "hardgainer" who is trying to put on weight. He has already eaten 3. I also used whole milk. I used chocolate protein powder for the last batch (choco-banana muffins) and they look bad but taste ok. These are pretty moist muffins. I like that. thanks
