    Yummy! I followed I Can't Believe It's Healthy's suggestions and used 1/2 c ww flour with 1 c flour and 1/2 sugar instead of Splenda. Very good! Thank you. Reviewed for Healthy Choices ABC tag game.
    These are amazing muffins! Fudgy! I had the fortune of having oat flour to use instead of regular flour--lower in carbs & a nice healthy grain, too. I also used the applesauce & loved the sour cream part (I always have extra to use up!) Tasted great; the black bananas are perfect for this recipe. Thanks so much for sharing!

    Wow! These baked up like a dream --they were great. I easily got 12 muffins (and not flat ones, either). I did substiture low fat sour cream, because I didn't have fat free.

    I've made these many times over the last several years and love them. I do make a few changes based on a review on another site where I first got this recipe. I reduce the splenda by 2 TBLS. Increase cocoa by 2TBLS. (This will add 40 calories.) I also add 1 teaspoon coconut extract and 1 tsp butter extract. These are wonderful and help me diet withought feeling deprived.
