Excellent recipe.. I made a couple of substitutions just for personal preference. I used half whole wheat flour, brown sugar (about 3/4) cup, and vanilla yogurt instead of sour cream. <br/>I also through in a 1/2 cup of chocolate chips! Yummy!
I made the muffins just as the recipe was written and loved them; did not find a need to add more sugar. The toasted pecans added a lot of flavour. I am on vacation without my usual recipes and googled to find this one. I think in the future this recipe will replace my old raspberry banana muffin recipe as they were so moist and tasty. I might try adding chocolate chips next time in addition to the pecans.
Very tasty muffin, but could be sweeter. The raspberry makes them taste less sweet. They taste a lot like banana bread. The sour cream is a no-fail for moist muffins. I love the recipe and will add more sugar next time.
