Great Recipe and a few suggested tweeks
My first attempt at this recipe died! First of all, follow the wet and dry instructions! The first time I didn't mix it as it said and my batter was night and day from the second. I used yellow bananas for my muffins, mashed them and put my eggs and sugar in with them and whipped them together until they were smooth and fluffy. I used Pumpkin Pie Spice and Almond extract (a little more than called for). I used a little more oil and buttermilk than called for (maybe two table spoons). I also used 1/4tsp each of baking powder and baking soda and omitted the salt from my recipe. I researched the oils and settled to stay with recommended oil (try organic pressed oil, if you can find it! I couldn't!) This oil is used because of the high smoke point it has (so it doesn't burn at higher temps). I didn't feel confident about using apple sauce yet to replace it, I wanted to get it right the first time and now I will play with it. I added a quarter cup of pure whey protein (thus the added oil and buttermilk) Next time I will try and extra egg white for this recipe. My father had a stroke three years ago and this recipe helps two fold, the bran for stomach issues and adding Whey is an added Protein which he needs.
I do have a few suggestions this recipe.
1. One large bowl (dry), one medium bowl (wet)
2. Measure out everything before combining and follow the instructions, except one. Put your cinnamon or what ever your use in with the wet ingr
