I wanted something healthy to give to my students on the 100th day of school. I didn't put in nuts or raisins. I also think it needed some more spices and perhaps more bananas. Only put in 3/4 tsp. Nutmeg. Should have put the whole tsp. I made donut shaped muffins and they came out very spongy and I liked them.

These are great. I add more banana than called for and used walnuts instead of raisins. I think additional spices, like cinnamon and allspice, make them more flavorful. When I don't have applesauce, I use 1/3 cup coconut oil instead. I've made this recipe lots of times and they always turn out great.

I'v made about 4 different types of your healthy muffins and they are fantastic! I added some almond butter to mine. Thanks for the healthy recipes! I initially went to this site because these recipes don't use refined sugar. Life can be good with out the refined stuff :)

Moist and baked up beautifully. I doubled the recipe and substituted chopped walnuts for half of the raisins. Next time I will use sweetened applesauce and regular raisins, though. Just to bump up the sweetness.

These are not very sweet, and I did have to bake almost twice as long as it says or i found it too spongey. But for a healthy muffin its ok, and surprisingly my kids loved them.

I thought these muffins were delicious, though I admittedly altered it significantly. I used on instead of applesauce (didn't have any), added cinnamon, used 1/2 c banana & 1/2 c pumpkin, only 4 T honey, and used 1/4 c mini choc chips instead of raisins

These baked up incredibly moist. I will use this as my base banana honey muffin from now on and change them up by substituting fruit, nuts , spices or extract flavours. Great recipe, thanks for submitting.

Very moist and easy. Everyone enjoyed them. I did substitute chopped pecans for the raisins because I didn't have any and also, to me, banana bread just isn't banana bread unless it has nuts!

I am not a nutmeg fan so i subsituted 1/4 tsp nutmeg and 1/2 tsp cinnamon. They were great!
