Sarah's Banana Bread Muffins
This was wonderful, and the kids I nanny for loved them. The only thing I would change is the cooking time. They were well done at 30 mins., so I would try 25 - 30 next time.

Apple Strudel Muffins
This came out really well. I only had one apple, so I added a cup of dried cranberries for Apple-cranberry muffins. It came out really well. I also added 1/4 applesauce and hide in three tablespoons of ground flax seed. Flax seed to great for added fiber,and omega's. The kids didn't even notice!!! I also added 1/4 cup apple sauce to offset the addition. I filled the muffins cups to the top and baked for 30 mins.
