We have been using this recipe in our house for awhile. I usually substitute yogurt for the sour cream. Sometimes I add a mashed banana if I happen to have a really ripe one.

These were good. Not too sweet and I like that. Next time I'll try with applesauce instead of oil like mom2lauren .

Wonderful recipe. As a Volunteer Field Editor, I enjoy testing recipes. This one is a keeper. I doubled the recipe and subbed in 1/2 applesauce for the amount of oil called for. They have a nice fine crumb and were enjoyed by my family!

These muffins are so delicious!!! I often substitute plain greek yogurt when I don't have sour cream. They are also really tasty with raspberries if you feel like changing it up.
