READER'S COMMENT:
"My whole family loved these muffins! I used oatmeal (instead of oat bran) and skim milk (instead of low fat milk). And used 1/2 cup of Splenda (not the blend). They are wonderfully moist and just the right sweetness. "

Nice Texture

- A half of the amount of the recipe yields a dozen of standard size muffins, with a pan filled almost full.
- Next time, I will reduce the amount of sugar by half as they are a bit too sweet to me.

Love the whole grain texture

Finally, a heathy muffin I don't feel guilty about eating!

I loved this recipe! I was a little hesitant on making it at first because my daughter does not like most of the ingredients (bananas, carrots, raisins, nuts) and I didn't want it to be a waste of time and ingredients, but I'm glad I made them! Everyone really enjoyed them. I did not have Oat Bran so I used dry old-fashioned oatmeal instead. Also, I did not have wheat germ so I opted for ground flax, I still used the same measurements and they both worked absolutely fine! I did not use any nuts on top for the reason of picky kids and b/c I had none on hand. I really appreciate these muffins because they are under 200 calories and don't have a lot of sugar like most others. Please try them, they are delightful!

Quick, moist, flavorful, healthy

Disappointed

I was excited to try these muffins based on other reviews. I didn't have wheat germ, so I substituted,with cornmeal. I think they are bland and on the dry side, maybe because of the cornmeal? I am still learning about substitutions in baking,
