    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 are fantastic. I added the applesauce and nutmeg and 1 1/2 x the recipe because I had 3 bananas (used 2 eggs). I think these were the best muffins ever! Thanks LISAKIRKSEY79! - 4/1/11

  • I was surprised how good these where. I'm picky with breads like this. I also found that one muffin was very filling. Hubby must have liked them as well because two where missing in the morning. - 10/25/10

  • Made these last night because I didn't want my bananas to go to waste. I will definately make again, and buy extra bananas to let ripen. (I used pecans because i didn't have any walnuts) AWESOME!!! - 1/29/10

  • just made them and tasted the first one...yummy! but i think i might use half brown sugar and half regular sugar next time, for my taste they could use a little extra sweetness. i even used the quick oat kind because that's what i had, and i just soaked it for less time. still good. - 1/10/10

  • Thanks for the great recipe! I used soy milk instead of milk and I only had 1/2 cup chopped walnuts so I added 1/2 cup raisins to it. It came out great. It's pretty filling too. Great for a snack. This recipe is to keep. - 12/15/09
