Banana Oat Muffins
I made the substitutions that others recommended: half brown sugar, half whole wheat flour. I substituted the oil for 1/4 cup applesauce and 1 1/2 tbsp oil. Also added 1/3 cup semisweet chocolate chipits and 1/3 cup chopped walnuts. I substituted 1/2 cup of the milk with sour cream and adjusted both the baking soda and baking powder to 1 1/2 tsp. They turned out well. Baked a little faster than I thought. Could use more banana taste, perhaps more bananas next time.

Poppy Seed and Banana Muffins
These turned out very bland and definitely not sweet enough, even with very ripe bananas. I tried to save the recipe by adding a sugar topping after they were baked: dip the muffins in 1/4 cup melted butter, then dip in 1/4 cup of sugar mixed with 1 tsp cinnamon. It helped add some sweetness but still not enough. I also tried putting half the poppy seeds as some people had recommended but I think the full amount would have been better.

Molasses Spice Muffins
I followed the recipe but made 1/2 cup buttermilk instead of powdered. These were a bit too "holiday" tasting for me... a bit like gingerbread. Also not sure if all that molasses sat well with me! The texture was good though.
