I sort of made this recipe- I used a couple substitutions. I used half and half whole wheat and white flour; applesauce instead of oil; egg replacer instead of eggs; I ground all the flaxseed; used 1/4 cup brown sugar instead of 1/2 cup white; and added more dates. I made a batch of 10 big muffins and they turned out great. I will definitely make this again. Thanks!

Healthy banana bread recipe that doesn't taste "healthy". I wanted to add more flax to our diet and found the perfect recipe. I made muffins instead of a loaf by baking for 30 mins. The flaxseeds give it a nutty flavor and texture. The kids love the muffins.

Excellent Recipe: My modifications: 1) used raisins, instead of dates 2) used all ground flaxseeds, no whole. I had heard that whole flaxseeds should never be used for ingesting or cooking, only ground. So I grounded the whole amount and put it all in there. The result is a nutrient-densed and delicous bread. Thank you!
