Hmmm...great base recipe. I used 2 mashed bananas, 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, 1 cup whole wheat flour, and 1/4 cup each flax meal and oat bran. Instead of soy milk I used 1 cup light coconut milk and 1/4 cup almond milk. They are not too sweet and very wholesome tasting. Yumm.

I do think it's a little odd to be eating a pancake-tasting muffin. I probably won't rush to make these again, but they were good. I guess they're perfect if you love pancakes but don't have the time in the morning to make them. I made these changes: butter instead of shortening, 2 mashed bananas, and regular 1% milk.

These were good, but didn't blow me away. Like another reviewer noted, this is a great base recipe. I will make this again, but with at least the following changes: use applesauce instead of shortening to make them healthy, perhaps half whole wheat flour, more banana, fresh ground nutmeg and cinnamon. Thanks for the recipe!

What a tasty way to add Soy to my diet. Will make again and again

These were excellent muffins. I love making muffins for my family and this was one of the best muffins I have ever made, especially because I melted in semisweet chocolate chips and added chopped walnuts to it. This was a great recipe. I have to say, the name is very original.

Decent recipe. Put apple sauce in instead of shortening, dough is a bit more firmer then I expected. Not sure if I over mixed or just because of the substitution. Thanks for the recipe.

Love these! (I made them with Rice milk rather than Soy milk because I think Soy milk tastes funny when heated.) My daughter, who has a dairy allergy, really enjoyed these right out of the oven with a little dairy free margarine. Thanks for this great recipe!
