    These were pretty good! They were way different a few mins out of the oven vs a few hours. A few mins out of the oven, they were light and fluffy and almost melted in your mouth. Later, they had a more hearty texture (denser) and I think they had a little more flavour. I think they were equally as good, just in different ways. I added a 1/4 tsp of cinnamon to the batter and I'm so glad I did bc it gave it so much flavour! also you dont have to use an electrical muxer, just a good wisk with a fork will do. (btw mine were all wonky and different sizes bc I used different size muffin liners and it made it hard to make even! lol). Overall they are pretty good and I might make again.

    Tried making these and they were a hit with my family! They're supper quick and easy. They were a hit dry though (although I might have just baked them too long).

    Mmmmmmmmmm these were SO GOOD! I added some cinnamon sugar and shook some ground cinnamon on top before I put them in the oven and they ended up amazing! My family and friends loved them! I will definitely be making these again! Thx! 😄 😋🤤

    These turned out so great for me!! I added cinnamon, nutmeg, and a bit of oats to my batter. I substituted the vanilla extract for pancake syrup since I didn't have the extract. In addition, I didn't have regular applesauce, only Mott's strawberry flavored applesauce. The end result were delicious muffins and I will DEFINITELY be making them again!

    These muffins were okay, but lacked the consistency of regular muffins. I’m not sure if I would make them again.

    I used cinnamon like another user suggested and they turned out great! My whole family loves them including the 3 year old (I had to make a 2nd batch just for her because she was eating so many)

    as someone who has literally never baked anything from scratch before these were so simple, cheap to make, and theyre delicious. i added cinnamon to them because i like it with bananas. 8/10 would cook again.

    Somehow edible, amazing and addictive.

    Very good! I think the sweetness is perfect, my sugar loving family thinks they need to be a little sweeter. I topped them with sliced almonds for a nice crunch; miniature dark chocolate (or carob) chips on top could give it a little more sweet kick for those who want that.
