Reviews for Spiced Banana Nut Muffins
"There's not nutmeg in this recipe so I'm not sure what the previous reviewer meant. Anyway, for being healthy, these are pretty good! I used pecans instead of walnuts, whole wheat flour, and 2 eggs because I had no egg substitute on hand.~ Theresa"
"Not a lot of flavor and there was too much nutmeg. I would add more sugar and cinnamon to the mix."
"Very good recipe!! I had to cut in 1/2 for just hubby & myself. And he couldn't say enough how much he liked these muffins!! (I didn't tell him they were healthy :) ) Thanks for sharing! MMMM good!"
