Nutrition & Calorie Comments  

I just tried these and they were very good... although based on a few comments, (bland), I added nutmeg, vanilla, and cinnamon to the recipe. They could have used a little salt too, but very very good. Submitted by:

I used half a cup of sugar after listening to everybody's comments, applesauce instead of oil and raisons as apposed to walnuts. Next time I think I'll use strawberry protein powder. Very tasty and moist Submitted by:

Please quit listing Splenda. It is not the least bit healthy. Organic sugar, honey or agave is the way to go. Submitted by:

Interesting that in the picture, there are pecans on the muffin, not walnuts. I don't use Splenda (don't like the flavor), but I may try them with reduced amount of sugar, but will have to calculate the nutrition again. Submitted by:

This recipe base hits the spot for me, healthier but not fatfree and dry. I added 1 tsp cinnamon, 1/2 tsp nutmeg and 1/2 banana more as well as some chopped figs for flavour and used "half spoon" sweetener to taste rather than pure splenda. Next time i'll use more banana and even less sugar. Submitted by:

I doubled the recipe and made the following adjustments: 1.5 c. white flour and 1.5 c. whole wheat flour, used chocolate protein powder instead of vanilla and pecans instead of walnuts, and 1/2 c. sugar (instead of 2/3 c. Splenda.) DELICIOUS! Everyone loved the taste and they baked up just beautiful Submitted by:

Just made these but changed the recipe a bit; lessened the milk and oil and substitued applesauce instead; also added some cinnamon and nutmeg. A little bland, needed a pinch of salt, otherwise good Submitted by:

This sounds like a delicious receipe. I am anxious to try it. I have some ripening bananas that I need to use up. I don't know if I can get individual packets of protein powder here in Canada. I don't like to buy too much if I'm not going to use it up. Submitted by:

Yum! The muffins are nice and moist, and easy to get out of the pan. I had orange-flavored protein powder so that's what I used -- not an obvious orange taste in the muffins, but they're good. I also didn't have wheat flour on hand; used 1.25 cups white and .25 cup wheat bran. It worked out well. Submitted by:

This is a great recipe, and I agree about the breakfast item! But I substitute Spelt flour, instead of white or wheat...NO lutens in it...and I sub Agave Nectur (a wonderful NATURAL sweetener) for the sugar, so it's great, healthy, and YUMMY! Submitted by:

This sounds great and would be perfect fora quick breakfast - my most difficutlt meal. But I don't use artificial sweetners. Would stevia work and how much would I use? How about honey? Regular sugar would blow the health benefits right out the window - probably would taste good though!LOL Submitted by:

If you can't eat wheat/gluten, use: 7/8 cup brown rice flour, 1/4 cup potato starch, 3/8 cup tapioca flour, 1 Tbsp. flax-seed meal, and 1 tsp. xanthun gum (a binder) to replace the 1 and 1/2 cups wheat flour in this mix. Use rice or soy based protein powder as well. Submitted by:
