I substituted 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce for the oil, used nonfat milk and, based on the previous comments, made 8 good-sized muffins instead of 6 huge ones. Those changes dropped the calories to 155 and the fat to 0.6 grams. Wonderful!! Boys loved them!
absolutely delicious! I didn't have a muffin tin so I made it in an 8 inch round cake pan, which gave 8 generous servings. I made a couple of substitutions - unsweetened applesauce for the oil and skim milk instead of 1%.
I made these for my family of 6 sons; 1st time using olive oil in baking, and wheat flour too. They loved them as much as my usual recipe! Double Batch, gone in one day! Note: doesn't have a strong banana flavor for those who LOVE bananas, may want more banana.
These are great as recipe goes, but change it up abit and lower those calories. Use Splenda not sugar, adjust it according to directions on Slenda box. Also 1/2 the oil and use 1/2 cup apple sauce (unsweetened). They turned out better than the original recipe. Even my 7 yr old g-son wanted more.
I made a few modifications to make it a bit healthier. Replaced the sugar with maple syrup, added 1/4 cup flaxseed mill in place of some of the flour, and used silk instead of milk. Over all, they were quick and pretty tasty! Next time i'm going to add nuts and oatmeal (in place of some flour)!
These were AMAZING. Doubled the recipe and it made 18 "normal" size muffins. So moist for whole wheat flour. Not heavy at all. Next time will try adding walnuts. Will make again and again and again.
These muffins were HUGE - you could probably make at least 9 regular size muffins from the recipe, so you are getting a lot of filling food for the 276 calories - much more than many other recipes I've tried!
I will make them today since I have bananas that need to be used up. I will use splenda instead of the sugar or eliminate the sugar altogether. I will also add almond pieces. Also I will add some ground flax to the dry ingredients for more fiber (ground flax is undetectable).
Never could leave a recipe alone. I used 1/2 c. applesauce +1t.olive oil, brown sugar Splenda, cranraisins instead of raisins, dash of nutmeg and cinnamon, 1/2c.whole oats +1c. flour and passed on the milk. They can make good moist cookies for the youngins Very yummy. I will make these again.
I like the idea of adding different ingredients to this recipe - apples, carrotts and maybe even dried crandberries. This will be fun as I love muffins - especially on days I have to hurry off to work.
Made these last night. Very easy 30 minutes start to finish. I added 1/4 almonds pieces and I used golden raisins in this recipe. The golden raisins are less intense that dark raisins. Made 12 muffins. Will definitely be making this again and again. Yum!!!
Exceptionally easy to make!! Even without eggs or baking powder, they rose beautifully! Probably would work equally well substituting other fruits for the raisins. Bananas were not overpowering but blended well with the sweetness of the raisins. This Is A KEEPER!
My family loved these muffins. I use unsweetened applesauce instead of oil and 3 medium bananas instead of 2. I also made them a little smaller and got more than a dozen muffins. Great recipe!
With some health changes... I subtracted 1/4 C flour, added 1/4 C wheat bran, added 2T flax seed meal, and added 1 egg. Just for fun I added chopped crabapples that I stole from the squirrels in our back yard. EVERYONE in the house loved them, including a one-year-old and a toddler. Not too sweet
Made these this afternoon with my daughter. We made 9 "regular" size muffins instead of 6 "jumbo" size ones, thus making more servings and reducing the fat/calorie content per serving. Really yummy.
I made this and love it!!! However, mine made 12 muffins....don't know what I did wrong, but they are still great!! I used Splena instead of sugar and non fat milk instead of 1%, and I only used 1/8 tsp. of salt...they are awesome and my family loves them!!
I tasted the batter and it wasn't as sweet as we'd like, so I added 1 Tablespoon of brown sugar (helps with moistness). I also added 2 Tablespoons milk to make the batter easier to work with, 1 teaspoon of vanilla and substituted walnuts for the raisins. I would definitely make them again.
Wonderful, but added an additional Banana.My hubby loved it, so did I. Made 12 regular sized muffins, plenty large enough and doing so cut the calories in half. Will definately make it again.
I made these several time and they were perfect every time! Definitely my favorite Muffins recipe! I somehow end up with 8 muffins instead of 6 but that lowers the calories for each muffin so it is all good! I sometimes replace raisins with dried cranberries or mini chocolate morsels and walnuts.
I made these last night, the batter seemed kinda thick and the muffins were a little dry. Its my first time baking with whole wheat flour, but definately will make again and will substitute oil for applesauce maybe that will make the muffins moist. Thanks for sharing!
I loved this! I substituted applesauce for the oil and 1/4c walnuts for the raisins. I would make this again and again. I loved the hint of vanilla. It kept me full all morning long. Thanks for sharing this recipe!
I wouldn't waste expensive Flaxmeal in these, not enough in each muffin to do much good, but some other fiber is good. Used dried cranberries and light olive oil, less of that olive taste. Good general recipe, like the one on the Oat Bran box.
Used applesauce in place of oil and rice milk in place of 1% milk, and added cinnamon and nutmeg. Batter was dry so I then added 1/4 cup (rice) milk than was called for. Muffins came out good but not great. Will try recipe again because I am at elevation and baking can be a bit of a challenge.
Very good muffins. I too made some substitutions. I used the applesauce in place of the oil and used 50/50 flour. I think next time though I will either use oil and muffin cups or no muffin cups and grease the pan.
I decided to add some walnuts to them and they came out quite good! I wished I knew about the applesauce instead of using all that oil, so I'll have to try that next time. It did come out a bit dry tho. You can get really creative with this recipe by adding different fruits and nuts to it.
I added applesauce and reduced the oil to 1 tbsp. I doubled the bananas and the raisins, used fat free milk and added 1/4 c. brown sugar along with a dash of cinnamon and a dash of nutmeg. I baked it in a glass loaf pan. Now my husband and kids (and I) can't get enough of it!
Very yummy! I added 1 extra banana, and subbed 1/2 cup applesauce & 1 tbsp olive oil for the 1/4 cup olive oil. My sun is milk allergic, so I subbed oat milk for the cows milk. I made 12 smaller muffins 106 calories each.
Made these this morning. Didn't have olive oil, so I used Canola oil. Also used 1/2 tsp baking powder and 1/2 tsp of baking soda. Also used 3 bananas and added 1 tsp cinnamon. Used skim milk instead of 1%.
I had a lot of trouble getting my head around the fact that this recipe has no eggs. Luckily I read the comments as I waited for the oven to preheat since I had piled the batter into a regular size muffin tin and it was way too much. I ended up making 9 muffins.
I too substituted unsweetened applesauce, and added nuts and craisins. Craisins and Bannana are a great flavor combo, plus you get the benefits from the cranberries! It is really good with using fresh cranberries too. It gives it a tartness to counter the sweetness! Too much Chopped, perhaps?!?
