"This is a healthy snack I concocted for my daughter when she was in school for those after school munchies. It satisfies and adds plenty of fiber, with flavor and nature's goodness. Sometimes I like to substitute the raisins for a cup of blueberries (fresh or frozen)or blackberries in the summer! If you have over ripe bananas, mash, add cinnamon, and freeze them to make these later. YUM!!"

"Wonderful! I omitted the extra raisins and added 1 1/2 cups frozen huckleberries, which are quite tart. My family likes a sweet muffin, so I was thinking I may have to put a glaze over them to make them sweeter. With the addition of the 1 1/2 cups berries and filling the tins 2/3 full, this recipe yielded 15 muffins. When I went back and checked 1 hour later there were 9 left(I only ate one.) Needless to say, there was no need for glaze! Thanks, ChefWiccaChikka!"
"Yummy! I fiddled w/ the recipe a bit - used all whole wheat flour, added an extra banana, 1/2 C dried unsweetened cranberries along with the raisins , 2/3 C vanilla yogurt & 1/3 vanilla soymilk instead of milk, crushed hi-fiber cereal instead of raisin bran, and left out the oil.
Came out well, with a gentle sweetness, great texture, and not too dry or mucky.
Thanks, WiccaChicca! -Perfect for a chilly rainy afternoon!"
"These taste great and have a lot of healthy stuff in them. My son practically inhaled them. Fruity & sweet -- and they have enough fiber that they really fill you up. Delicious! And the recipe was really easy. I'm about to make another batch!"
"My kids thought these were a bit "plain". That probably means they weren't sweet enough for their tastes. But if someone is looking for a muffin without a lot of sweetness, these would be perfect. They definitely have a bunch of healthy stuff in them. I was running out of regular flour so substituted half whole wheat. Also used 3/4 cup of buttermilk and 1/4 cup reg. milk, because I had butter milk to use up. They turned out just fine."
