I was looking for a lower fat/calorie banana bran muffin so I modified this in combination with another low fat bran muffin recipe. I substituted the butter for 1/4c unsweetened applesauce, only used 1 egg, halved the sugar to 1/4c, increased the wheat bran to 1c and used 1/2c each of wheat flour and all purpose flour. The sweetness was just perfect for me (the banana gives a lot of sweet flavor) and so moist! Each muffin turns out to be about 100 calories, so we're free to munch on them guiltless! The first batch I made used only 2 bananas and 1/2c applesauce, this was a little dryer than using 3 bananas and 1/4c applesauce, but still good!

These were excellent... very moist, great flavor, enjoyed by all. The only change I made was to use whole wheat flour. Thank you for the recipe. This recipe is a keeper, my favorite muffin recipe yet.

These are great muffins and with a little doctoring they can become extremely nutritious as well. I substitute 1 1/2 cups of flax seed meal for the butter, and I add walnuts and cinnamon for extra texture and flavor. If I have soy milk around I use that instead of the cows milk. You wind up with very dense, tasty muffins that are extremely good for you.
