SO HOW'D IT GO?

I made homemade applesauce by just blending some apples with a touch of water and stevia, and I substituted 1/4 brown sugar in place of some white sugar. There were AMAZING! Sometimes the recipes on this site just don't work out for me but these are a keeper. My whole family and boyfriend loved them, and they are always unsure of my vegan foods XD oh and I used coconut oil (melted in the microwave) for the oil.

Soooooooo good! Followed recipe exactly except I used raw cane sugar instead of white and sprinkled brown sugar on top like others suggested. The brown sugar gives it a nice crunch. Yum! Will definitely make again. (Note: white sugar is not vegan. Raw cane sugar replaces it easily. Use the same amount.)

I substituted chopped pecans and added brown sugar on top from someone's suggestion and these came out beautiful.  Very moist and filling.

Made the following changes: used applesauce for all the oil; added 1 tsp cinnamon, 3/4 cup blueberries, 1/2 C oatmeal, 1/4 C non-dairy milk.  Could have used a little more mositure (another 1/4 C milk) and some vanilla.  They were a little dryer and plain than I wanted, but the texture was very good!  Slight "muffin crust" on the outside!  Yum :)

i bake A LOT. i love the high banana to muffin ratio and the short ingredient list! the flavor is simple and let's the banana shine. the texture is nice. i stretched the batter to 15 muffins. they are being served to preschoolers and they just don't need a giant muffin. this recipe could totally be dressed up with a teaspoon of jam and crumb topping or keep it simple.

ETA: With the raspberries, folded them into the batter just before doling it out to the cupcake papers, so they were pretty much whole.

...made a second batch, substituting about 1/4 - 1/2 cup of thawed frozen raspberries for one of the bananas. Turned out great! Thanks again for this recipe.
