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 and easy to make.

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!

This recipe came out ok. I used cinnamon applesauce instead of oil and left out the nuts. I added some dried cranberries, which was a nice touch of sweetness because the recipe doesn't contain much sugar. These are good for a quick breakfast on the run.

Excellent recipe! I changed it up a little by using unsweetened applesauce & adding a touch of blue agave sweetener. I also added a little vanilla extract and left out the pecans. I will defininately make this "healthier" version again. :)

I just tried the original recipe and it was great(i cut back on the cinnamon though. I thought it would overpower the banana flavor). I really like it.

For an even lower fat, more wonderful version ...Increase the oats to 1 1/4 cups, increase the baking powder to two tsps, leave out the pecans and sub sweetened applesauce for the oil ... each muffin should then have about 115 calories.
