Banana Morning Glory Muffins (Cooking Light)

"A delicious, nutritious and satisfying muffin from "Cooking Light Magazine (July 2007). You can definitely play around with this recipe- it does well with substitutions. These freeze very well. Either microwave for 20 seconds or just pull one out of the freezer before you leave for the day, and it will be defrosted and perfect in about an hour, just in time for a snack!. If you want, you can fold the flax into the batter, rather than sprinkling it on top."

  1. these are delicious! i used golden raisins and craisins as that was all i had for dried fruit. i also left out the oat bran as i didn't have any, but they turned out great!
  2. These are wonderful! Kept pinching myself ... hard to believe they are so healthy. Used vanilla low fat yogurt, because that's what I had. Left out the wheat bran and flax seed, didn't have any. Used pitted prunes, dried apricots, dried pineapple, chopped dates, and craisins. The chewy dried fruit is a sweet treat in these moist, good-for-you muffins!
  3. This is my favorite muffin recipe ever! I know I will make this recipe over and over again. It is delicious! I used golden raisins, dried pineapple and vanilla yogurt when I made mine.

  4. These muffins are a outstanding! Just the right amount of sweetness. I add dates, dried apricots, dried coconut as well as sunflower seeds and walnuts. I make sure there is always a supply of these on hand.
  5. These are delicious. I use any kind of yogurt that I have on hand. I add raisins and blueberries. They're moist and freeze well. Highly recommended!
