To Die For Blueberry Muffins
Absolutely delicious! Definitely a sweet muffin, and the topping is like a shortbread or sugar cookie crumble...don't scrimp on it!!! I used frozen blueberries that I thawed, and they worked just fine! I also got 11 normal sized muffins out of the recipe, filling my muffin cups with a 1/4 C. measuring cup, then the topping to the top of the cup. Highly recommended!

Banana Oatmeal Cookie
We enjoyed these cookies at our house. I substituted butter for the shortening (minus 1/2 tsp. of salt as described on the AllRecipes substitution page : I also split the dough into 2 groups before mixing in any nuts, and added 1/3 cup of dried cranberries in one half, and 1/3 cup of mini chocolate chips In the other half, omitting the nuts entirely. I was also a little short of the 1 & 3/4 cups of oats, but the texture was fine. I baked them at 400 degrees for about 10 minutes, with 2 batches I the oven at a time. This recipe is a keeper!

Apple Banana Cupcakes
My family decided these were more muffin like the way i made them. I made a few changes, but really liked the overall outcome. First, I used margarine instead of shortening, sour milk (milk + lemon juice) instead of buttermilk, egg substitute (like egg beaters) instead of eggs, and used about 1/3 cup mashed banana (only had 1 over-ripe banana on hand) + a little more than 2/3 cup of pumpkin purée, and added a few dashes of pumpkin pie spice in addition to the cinnamon and nutmeg called for in the recipe. They came out a nice color, flavor and texture, and are great for fall!
