Very moist and delicious. I substituted 1/2 cup wheat flour for the white flour and also only used 1/2 cup honey. Mine also needed a few extra minutes cooking time.

After reading one review, I omitted the honey, added only 2/3 cup of sugar. With the very ripe bananas, the cupcakes were sweet enough and certainly a healthy dessert.

are you sure that the recipe calls for 3/4 of a cup of honey? I used that amount thinking it was a lot, and the cupcakes spread all over the cup cake pan. and they were real sticky when cool. Great flavor, reminded me of a real moist oatmeal cake.

I'd like to find a way to use some substitutes to make these even healthier, but the way the recipe is now is delicious. YUM!

I used a mini loaf pan to make bread instead of cupcakes. They turned out perfect.
