These smell divine!! They are in the oven right now and my house smells soooo good!! I did use some pumpkin in place of the applesauce since I didn't have any, and added some vanilla and cinnamon as others suggested. I also cut the sugar in half and added walnuts and a few chopped peanut butter chips. Will let you know how they taste after they get eaten.
I loved this recipe. I made it with King Arthur's whole wheat flour, along with two dashes of cinnamon and a teaspoon of vanilla. My husband said it was pretty good for a low-fat muffin. I'll freeze the leftovers and will definitely make this again :-)
Outstanding recipe! I made this recipe with my 3 year old son, and he loved making them as well as eating them! To me, they taste even better than the full fat high calorie versions of this I've had. I followed exactly... only thing was I forgot the salt but with the oats I really didn't miss it. This is a keeper!!
These are delicious and easy to make! I did use whole wheat flour, and I cut the sugar down to 1/3 cup. I sprayed my paper liners after reading other reviews. I will definitely make these again!
These muffins are really good! They truly are worth your time to make them.
I made a batch of these just to use up my old bananas; OMG, they are great! Virtually no fat, full of fiber, ridiculously easy and mighty tasty to boot! I sprayed the muffin pan and did not use paper liners as from previous experience I know that low fat muffins always stick to the paper. I took half to work and everyone raved about them. They are moist, flavorful and not heavy at all. The only thing I would suggest would be to use mini chocolate chips for a more even chocolate dispersiion. I am going to try them with cinnamon chips next time. I may have to let my next batch of bananas go brown on purpose.
Sept 16/12 - These are fantastic! I used splenda in place of the sugar, and used whole wheat flour. The only applesauce in the house was strawberry/kiwi flavoured, so I used it. These muffins are to die for. Healthy and Yummy! Thanks for posting such a great recipe.
I have made these several times now and they have become a favorite in my house. My girls love them and no one can believe they have no butter or oil. I used whole wheat flour like suggested and an unsweetened applesauce cup. A keeper for sure.
