SO HOW'D IT GO?

Great muffins, a little dry though. Not sure how to correct for that. Maybe I just don't bake them right.

I have made these 5 times, now, and they are the moistest muffins ever (they really are so perfectly delicious)  :)>>>!  However, I do change a couple of things slightly - I use 3 large bananas (instead of 4) & a 1/2 cup of applesauce (instead of a 1/4).  Not sure if that's what does the trick, but you might want to give it a try?

I LOVE these!  I have had so little success in the kitchen making vegan items that the fact this has turned out beautifully has me psyched.  Thank you so much for posting this recipe  ;)b

this is a good solid muffin recipe. i kept them in the fridge and the flavor got better the next day.  if i make them again, i will definitely try to make them a day ahead of when i plan on eating them.    they turned out well using white whole wheat flour, and i also added some vanilla extract.

The only thing I did differently (not by choice) was use org. cherry applesauce and whole wheat pastry flour because those were all I had.  My mom and my toddler both loved them.  So THANK YOU! :)

These muffins were a definite hit! I got enough comments about how "yummy and moist" they were to make the whole dessert experience seem slightly obscene ;)

Okay, these were crazy good!  The applesauce I used was Whole Foods brand with cinnamon but you couldn't really taste it.  I made 3 plain banana, 3 with dark chocolate chips (yummmmm) and 6 with walnuts.  The recipe was perfect for 12 muffins.

Crazy good is right!  I didn't have any applesauce so per skits suggestion, I added oil and instead of soy milk (only had chocolate soy) I used vanilla soy creamer and a little vanilla extract.  Per lynnabeana's suggestion, I sprinkled oats on top and mixed in vegan chocolate chips and the walnuts.  OMG they are so good!  I made 6 big ones and 5 regular sized ones and they are really yummy.  Thanks for the recipe!
