We love this muffin recipe!!! I followed completely the first time and it was great, but now, instead of white flour, I add 3/4 cup of rolled oats that I pulse in the food processor quickly, blueberries, ground pears, if I have a few extra ripe ones (instead of applesauce), almond extract, and a spoonful or 2 of Nutella. The kids love all the flavors, and with the addition of the almond extract and other goodies I cut the sugar to 1/4 cup.
Really yummy with a good amount of chocolate :) used only 1/4 cup of sugar and made both amounts of flour whole wheat. Instead of muffins made 8 mini loafs and they always turn out fantastic, get lots of requests for these from family and friends
Yummy and so easy to make! I added a little cinnamon - might try clove next time. I used a mini muffin tin which worked very well.
These are absolutely fantastic!! I have been on a low fat/reduced carb diet and these hit the spot. I also used splenda in place of sugar and egg beaters. I increased the whole wheat flour to 1 cup and reduced the white flour to 1/2 cup. I made a batch last week and they didn't last long! Will be making these again tonight!!!
Absoulutely loved these. Made them a little more low cal by substituting 1/2 of the sugar with Splenda and used Egg Beaters for the egg. I did use the whole wheat flour but substituted self rising flour for the all purpose since low fat muffins are sometimes more dense. I did keep the b. soda and b. powder as listed. These rose up very well and were super moist. I stuck with 1/2 cup mini choc. chips. Not sure how many cals I saved but know it was less than the 155 calories listed. My husband ate 4 right off the bat!
These were a huge hit. I was worried that they may not work out so well because I didn't have any baking soda, I just added a little more baking powder. My kids liked them so much they made sure that I bought some more bananas -unfortunately they didn't know to remind me about the baking soda. :-) I also left the banana chunks a bit bigger so my Dh said you could taste the banana more. We will be making these again. Thanks for the recipe.
These are really tasty. Most importantly, they set up and have a nice, light fluffy texture. I only had two bananas so I added a little extra applesauce to compensate. Also used regular flour instead of whole wheat (would have but didn't have it!). I used cocoa powder instead of the chips to make it even lower fat and they still came out great. Thanks!
This is a great recipe! I've made two batches in one day. Very easy, very quick and very satisfying. Here's some changes I made though; I used brown sugar instead of regular, I added half teaspoon of cinnamon for extra punch, I got good quality dark chocolate (70%) which I pounded to make chunks that are little bigger than ready choc chips and I added half cup of chopped walnuts that gave it great texture. I'm already getting requests for more batches!
Super!! These were really delicious!! And they didn't taste low fat at all! I've recently made a lot of changes to my family's diet, and therefore I'm always on the look out for healthier versions of the foods we love. This was a total hit! It is a healthy option without tasting healthy! Thank you!!!
