From my Middle School. We made them with apple in school and at home I made them with a banana instead.

I changed quite some of the ingredient, so I was not sure I can rate this. But since this is the 'basic recipe' I used, I must give it a thumb up. Though on my first try, it tasted a bit bland but I love thess muffins since they stayed soft after days. And it's easy to make, been making this with my 2 years old son. The canges I made is, I used whole wheat flour instead of white flour, I replaced oil with apple sauce and double the banana, and add a bit vanilla on the wet ingredients. I'm thinking to add oatmeal next time. Thank you!
