SO HOW'D IT GO?

These muffins are dangerously good and perfectly moist.  I made a few changes to the recipe, though - Instead of arrowroot I used about three quarters of a teaspoon of cornstarch, and instead of a banana I used a plantain.  I wonder if these substitutions account for the fact that my muffins were definitely not gooey like some other people's muffins.  Oh, and I also mixed in some blueberries.  8)

MMM! I just took these out of the oven and am now eating one... I used whole weat flour (it is all I had) and they turned out great! I was pouring the mix into the muffin tins but then I wondered if I was supposed to put those papers, so I filled half with papers and half with no papers. They both turned out fine!

Yummy muffins! We just went strawberry picking the day before so I was able to use fresh strawberries! Instead of the large amount of sugar, I substituted the equilant of STEVIA for the cup of sugar and added the 1/4 sugar (and did not use the arrowroot)

This recipie was awesome!  They came out very soft, and kind of cakey, but in my opinion, that was delicious.  I was giving them to everyone to try, and every one of my family and friends loved them.  :)

the banana here is likely acting like an egg replacer, so you can try a different replacer. i would suggest looking at the blueberry muffin recipe that a lot of people enjoy-- it is banana free AND i've made it several times replacing the blueberries with strawberries.

What would be a good replacement for the banana for those of us who can't eat or don't like bananas?  Thanks!

Mine came out very gooey as well, even though I baked them longer than were called for.  Yet, I like gooey stuff so I had no problem finishing them.

Wow!  These are awesome!!!  I just made them for my daughters birthday to give to her class and they were a big hit!!!  I used half whole wheat flour and substituted applesauce for the margerine.  I also only used half a cup of soy milk.  They turned out fabulous - not gooey at all!  I will definitely be making these again!!!
