These were fantastic! I altered the recipe a bit, reducing the flour to 2 cups (all white, didn't have whole wheat on hand) and adding some quick-cook oatmeal and flaxseed to equal approx a 1/2 cup, and added about 1.5 cups of frozen blueberries. I also increased the baking soda and powder a bit, so about 1.5 tsp of each. It ended up making 24 muffins. They came out very moist, not dry AT ALL, and pretty dense, which I don't mind. They're delicious and filling. Thank you!

I made these this morning for a play group. One of the girls has food allergies and I do not like baking things I know she can't have. I was very skeptical before baking them, as the batter was very thick. I used all whole wheat pastry flour and added some applesauce as I was a short a banana. They were delicious. The best vegan bread item I've ever had. (I have not had many but, still.) Everyone liked them, kids and adults. I sprinkled them w/ some organic sugar when they came out of the oven.

I subbed the cardamom for 1/2 teaspoon each of nutmeg and cloves. The dough was a bit thick, so I was worried they'd come out dry and heavy, but they were perfect! Thanks so much for sharing.
