  • Love these! I always add vanilla and cinnamon, plus extra ingredients if I have them: not-so-fresh blueberries, chopped dried apricots, etc. I don't bother to crush the cereal; I just mash it into the bananas with a potato masher. Yum! - 2/18/13

  • These are great! I add 2 tsp vanilla and .5 tsp cinnamon. I've become addicted to these and make double batches to freeze and eat for breakfast for a few weeks. I just take one out the night before, put it in a plastic container to take to work, and eat it the next morning. Yum! - 2/21/09

  • I substituted 1/2 cup ground flax seed for the oat bran. I aslo cut out the 1/2 cup of sugar and used low sugar applesauce. This makes a great breakfast muffin and snack anytime of the day. - 1/19/09

  • Fantastic! I didn't have everything so I substituted 1/4 c more apple sauce for a banana. Organic Flax Plus Multibran Cereal for Kashi Autumn, and 7 grain flour for Oat bran. My nutritional info has changed but is still a filling/nutritious choice. Yum! - 1/19/09

  • Very good muffins, but the whole wheat flour is not listed in the Ingredient Details from which the nutrition info is calculated. I believe the calorie count would be around 125 or so, but don't know how much it might affect the fiber. - 9/30/08

  • Delicious!! Wish it gave the fiber count. - 7/16/08
