    Wow! Super muffins, tasty, moist and whole grain yummy. I can't keep these around for long, they just get gobbled up! Who says healthy can't taste wonderful? - 4/13/09

    These are wonderful. I did add a 1/4 of a cup of chopped walnuts, 3 tablespoons of miniature chocolate chips and doubled the cinnamon. I have found that cinnamon increases the sweetness without added sugar. - 2/24/11

    These are fantastic! I actually spread them out to 15 muffin cups, so that I can grab two for breakfast and not feel bad! Even my "not healthy what-so-ever family" loved them. Next time I'll sprinkle a few slices of almonds on top, just for crunch. - 7/19/09

  • Mine turned out badly! Dry, probably needed to cook 12 min rather than 18. The banana taste was not strong. Would have to try whole wheat pastry flour if I try again.. A disappointment after many rave reviews. - 7/15/13
