This recipe is so forgiving it's scary. To start off, I went into this without having any butter on hand (I substituted it with filling a 1/3c measuring cup just over halfway with vegetable oil, then filling up the remainder of the cup with 2% milk). Then I realized that of the three bananas I had on hand, one had gone very bad (not just mushy) and had to be chucked (so I only used two med-large bananas in the recipe). Thirdly, while mixing, I realized I only had 1/4 cup of white sugar in the house, so I substituted the remainder with packed dark brown sugar. I'm normally not this awful in the kitchen, I swear. To top it ALL off, I must have been in such a panic over all this subbing/deletion of items, that I absentmindedly added the 1/3 c of packed brown sugar meant for the streusel topping TO THE MIX ITSELF. I guess whats sadder is I didn't realize it until just before I pulled the muffins out of the oven. Given all this, I'm surprised I ended up with what I did - gorgeous, spongey-soft muffins chock full of flavor. The only thing that didn't taste good was the streusel, seeing as it was basically just flour, cinnamon, and margarine, but that's by no means ANYONE'S fault but mine, hah. I'm sure that with the brown sugar added to the RIGHT part of the recipe, it could make grown men cry. In summation, if you've been counting, that's FOUR prep blunders/substitutions, and these still came out amazing. Highly recommended!
