"These weren't great. Pretty flat."

"I made them with 1/4 c of real maple syrup and maybe a Tbsp or 2 of sugar. I also incorporated about 1-2 Tbsp of chia seeds into the batter, instead of nuts and sprinkled a few on top. I would make them again!"

"Very good! I used 1 whole egg instead of 2 egg whites and they turned out great."

"Good muffins...turned out very well, although the bananas were less than wonderful and not as great-tasting. Will try again with better bananas!"
