    Gorgeous and kids loved them. Ive made 4 batches now - once used SR flour and left out baking powder and Bicarb - once put in cinnammon. They are that easy to make i've made them before kids got up and they've had them for breakfast (and please note i am NO Baker lol )  -  06 Jul 2012


    Used different ingredients. I used 6 small over ripe bananas, 50g of oats so reduced the flour, added cinnamon 1 1/2tsp and nutmeg 1/4tsp it made 17 muffins and the mix was really moist  -  19 Apr 2009


    Altered ingredient amounts. I used wholemeal plain flour, for a more filling, healthier option, and added a few drops of vanilla essence.  -  04 Jul 2011
