What a great way to use up bananas in a healthy, high-fibre way. This one's a keeper for me. I baked this in a bundt pan and made it a cake and it was super moist and tasty. I substituted: 1/2 cup sugar with 1/4 cup splenda and 1/4 cup sugar. 1/2 cup margarine with 1/2 cup applesauce. 12 dates with 1/2 cup sliced strawberries. For 1/12th of the cake, it's 2 points. Can't beat that!!

These muffins are okay. I did reduce the baking powder by half (this is still probably more than necessary for 12 muffins) and doubled the cinnamon- both on the advice of other reviewers. I thought it was interesting that this recipe has no milk, maybe a splash wouldn't hurt. Also, I used 1/2 golden raisins and 1/2 dried figs instead of the dates. It was a good choice. The inside of the muffin is nice and moist, very muffin-like denseness. However, I slightly overcooked mine. so the outside was a bit chewy. Thank you for a good way to use up bananas

These were ok. I found myself digging through them just to get to the dates, and the rest of the muffin was just there to hold the dates in place. I subbed applesauce for the margarine, only used 1 T of baking powder because 2 seemed like you'd be able to taste it, and used a mix of whole wheat flour and AP. Not awful, but I won't be making these again.

After reading the previous comment. I decided to add 1/4 cup of butter milk and doubled the quantity of cinnamon. DH says they are great.

I found these muffins to be very dry and low in flavor. Baked goodies are a treat for me, and I want them to be exceptional. I would rather stick to my oatmeal for lowfat and have more flavor in my muffins. Sorry.
