    Yummy! I did use 2 tsp of white sugar in place of the s/l. Also, added 2 tbsp of ground flax seed. Very tasty. I always seem to have banana's in the freezer, nice change from banana bread. - 1/25/11

    Outstanding!! I added about 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce to the mix & then some wheat germ on the top of the muffins. They were very moist. Great recipe!!! - 12/29/10

    Yum! I added a little nutmeg, subbed skim for Silk vanilla almond milk, and splenda instead of equal/s&l. - 8/20/10

    Very good! Nice clear directions. Moist and tasty. They rose quite a bit. I cut down on the nuts and used 1/2 c almonds.
    Soaking the oats is a good idea. The grandkids loved them. They were all gone in a few minutes. Less for me to be tempted by. Will definitely make again.

    These were awesome! We didn't have an egg so I used 1/4 cup of applesauce. Also I used a packet of truvia. I could not tell that these were healthy. They were moist and just perfect. Love 'em. - 5/11/11
