    I omitted the lemon zest, replaced the oil that the recipe asked for with 1/3 cup of applesauce, added an extra 1/4 cup of bananas, and also added some extra chopped walnuts, as it seemed like there weren't quite enough. I don't have a standard-sized muffin tin, so I just filled my 24-mini-muffin-tin. The result? Heavenly, and even lower in fat!  -  24 Aug 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    We added a package of vanilla instant pudding mix and 1/2 cup applesauce and 1/4 cup milk to the batter for added moistness. Cut down the oil to 1 TBSP. Added 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon and 1/2 cup rolled oats. Also put in about 1 and 1/2 cups of mashed banana. Baked in our oven at 350 for 23 minutes. Delish! Would be great with mini chocolate chips!  -  28 Sep 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This will be a great muffin for my husband and kids to "grab n go" in the morning. I doubled the recipe, cut back on the white sugar, added 1/2 C brown sugar, and it gave them a wonderful bronze color and flavor! I omitted the lemon zest, and instead simply added Vanilla Extract. I increased the amount of banana as well, using 4 large ripe bananas. I also added extra walnuts for more protein content. All in all I will probably be making this recipe again. Thanks!  -  22 Apr 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
