MY REVIEW

"I really liked this recipe but I also tweaked some things. I substituted 2 t Baking Power and 1 t Baking Soda for the 3 t Baking Soda. I also added 2 C Banana along with 1 t Cinnamon and 1/4 t Nutmeg. Would have given it 5 Stars but I believe the 3 t Baking Soda is a mistake or misprint."

"My husband always teases me because I hardly ever really follow a recipe. So, I don't use the walnuts. Instead, before I add the chocolate, I add about 6 or 7 strawberries that I cubed and a sliced banana. Then I add 1 cup chocolate chunks, and 1 cup chocolate mini chips. Super yummy, and since we don't have any weight issues and rarely eat sugary treats, I sometimes use these for a quick breakfast. Hey, you can't tell me that a pop tart is healthier than a homemade muffin! :)"

"Instead of using AP flour I used 1 1/2 cups bread flour and 1/2 cup pastry flour. Made them more muffin like and cut the baking soda in half. They weren't huge, but my daughter loved them!"
