    These were great! I did substitute real sugar (1/3 C) since I don't do artificial sweetners or splenda. I will make these again. Tasted like banana nut bread. - 6/15/08

    I used choc protein powder because I didn't have any vanilla. They turned out very good. I would even suggest adding cinnamon and nutmeg. Great for a snack! - 6/11/08

    I wliked these very much. It is possible to buy individual envelopes of protein powder to make it cost effective for those who don't want to buy a large amount of it. - 6/8/08

    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. - 4/7/13

    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. - 6/8/08

    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! - 7/10/08

    Pretty good. A little sweet. I might reduce the Splenda next time I make them. - 7/17/08

    I like these very much. I used 1/3 cup sugar instead of Splenda which made a tasty, less sweet version. - 10/17/07

    Please quit listing Splenda. It is not the least bit healthy. Organic sugar, honey or agave is the way to go. - 6/12/13

    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 - 9/20/10

    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. - 3/28/10
