"They are so delicious - you wouldn't believe that something with prunes would be so good, but they are! And they are low in fat - 1 muffin is less than 5grams of fat. They are so moist and not rubbery or chewy! A definite must try. I had the whole lot devoured in a day."

Carefully followed recipe except added a bit more vanilla extract. I hand mixed everything so I wouldn't overmix. A good recipe to use up over ripe bananas and unwanted prunes. Nice banana fl...

Wow, how impressive is this recipe! I bought a large pack of prunes only to find my kids no longer liked them. This worked perfect! The only thing I did different was added 2 tsp cinnamon and...
