    FANTASTIC! I subbed 1/2 the white sugar for brown sugar, no nutmeg, and added 1/2 tsp cinnamon and 1/2 cup chopped pecans. It made 6 jumbo muffins. - 1/30/09

    I am on a low carbohydrate diet. Any suggestions around reducing the three bananas? Sugar substitute works and really reduces the carbs. Would a single banana and banana flavouring do the trick? Or would something else have to be added. Tastes great but I can only eat 1/3 slice! - 1/30/09

    I'm not really sure Dametemplar... the bananas really add structure to the bread. You might have to search the web for "low carb banana bread" to find another recipe that would fit your carb needs. Let us know what you find!
