This recipe is awesome. I did change some things: I used Whole Wheat flour (With the Cocoa color, you cant even tell, if youve got picky eaters), and I used half the oil . I made up the 1/3c difference with milk. I also added a handful of walnuts. This probably shouldnt be an every day breakfast, but its amazingly good! Read More

After tasting these muffins and then reading the reviews I had to double-check to see if I remembered everything. The muffings were dry and tasteless. Even slathering them with butter didn't make them more appealing to my kids. Read More

These muffins were very tasty and easy to make. I halved the amount of oil, though and used half applesauce. They were very moist! Read More

I read the other reviews and decided that 425 seemed a little hot for this recipe so I baked the muffins at 350 for 15-20 minutes and they came out perfect. My husband and I have really enjoyed them. Read More

These are delicious and very easy! I was a little bit low on banana so I added about a half cup of applesauce and they were great. My five-year old thinks they're the best ever. Read More
