This came out great! to make it extra healthy I substitute the flour for wheat flour instead and instead of vegetable oil I used lighter bake oil and butter replacement! So its less calories and less fat:-) I also used 6 packets of truvia instead of sugar to make it sweet! Thank you for this recipe:-)

After the first day these muffins were incredibly dry. I couldn't force myself to eat them. If I try this recipe again, I will be making only enough to eat fresh, or else adding more fat.

These muffins were very delicious! I made a few substitutions that helped make them extra moist and even less in calories!

Use 3 tbsp of unsweetened applesauce instead of oil
Use splenda instead of sugar
Use Egg Creations instead of a real egg

I used wheat bran, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, 1/8 tsp nutmeg and a dash of cloves. I used white sugar - no substitute. I used pecans rather than walnuts and a small box of raisins. The muffins are chewy and have an okay flavor. If I make this recipe again I'd use more of all the spices and maybe a little more sugar. They came out a little strong on the bran flavor. I used foil muffin cups and didn't have any problems.

I really wanted to like these muffins but I didn't. Just me I think as I am not a big fan of bran, but I thought with the banana and nutmeg I would really like them. Sorry

Great muffins! I followed the recipe without the nuts, but put in 1/4 tsp cinnamon instead of nutmeg. Next time I may try using both. The only other thing I would change is spraying the muffin pan next time instead of using paper liners -- when trying to remove the muffin from the liner, they ripped apart. Thanks for sharing!

Fabulous! Smelled wonderful. I also used Splenda & added cinnamon (didn't use nutmeg). Used applesauce for the oil & half whole wheat/oat flour. Can't wait to have some with coffee!! Thank u very much for sharing.

These muffins have been kid tested and they passed muster. They (and myself) loved them. We ate them right from the oven -- YUMMY!! I highly recommend this muffin recipe. It contains little fat and sugar plus the other ingredients are very healthy. I have my grandson on a bit of a diet, and this muffin more than fills the bill for an after-school healthy snack. Besides being low calories, it is also low fat, low sugar and high in healthy fiber --what the children don't know - or adults for that matter - won't hurt them - in fact, it will help them all very tastily!! These muffins are truley awesome! I followed this recipe as written with no changes. I didn't measure the banana content, I had 3 bananas that were ready for baking and that's what I used; eyeballing the quantity of mashed ripe banana, it appeared to be about 3 cups after mashing; SUPERB!! Thanks roxygibbs for your valuable contribution.
