My muffins came out more like biscuits--they were dense and lumpy and not at all cakey like I was expecting. I also thought that there was very little flavor to them; I could barely taste the bananas and I couldn't tell that there were any spices at all. We ended up discarding the whole batch. A shame, because the list of ingredients sounded so appealing!
