    Crispy yet moist toddler son loved them! The banana flavour was not strong enough so I may need to add an extra one next time. Used frozen blueberries and made them cupcake size for little hands to hold.  -  21 Aug 2009


    Have saved this as a favourite. We made these this morning as our first School Holiday project. Great fun to make and are soooo yummy! We didn't have any blueberries so used canned drained boysenberries - the muffins went a bit purple but still tasted great!!  -  05 Jul 2009


    I don't normally review recipes that I make even if they're really good, but this one I had to. I traded in oil for 3/4 cup unsweetened applesauce, the brown sugar for Splenda for Baking, and added a banana because the ones I had were pretty small. Usually when I do this, my muffins come out hard and not as moist as the real recipes, but this one came out just AWESOME! I also added 3/4 tsp salt, 1 tblsp cinnamon and a small dash of cloves for more flavour. I will definitely be making this one of my staple recipes. Never have I made a muffin that tasted so delicious (and I make some at least once a week) and had only healthy ingredients. I'm so glad you decided to share your recipe! Thank you!  -  04 Apr 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
