    Made it healthier. Halved the sugar, and used 200ml of olive oil in place of the 225g butter  -  26 Mar 2011


    These are really nice muffins! One important word of advice, though: cut down the sugar!!! I halved the sugar and they were still very sweet. Next time I will add even less. The granola adds sweetness, the banana adds sweetness and the coconut adds sweetness... so, really, you don't need 400g of sugar! Otherwise, I followed to the letter, except for using 200ml of olive oil in place of the 225g butter. I sprinkled granola over the tops of the muffins before baking, which made them look really appetising and pretty. Will make again, with less sugar. Thank you!  -  26 Mar 2011
