  • OP, I made the muffins yesterday morning (my bananas were ripe enough!) and they were fabulous! I substituted 1/2 cup honey for the sugar (my strawberries already had some sugar in them) and 1/2 cup whole wheat flour for 1/2 cup white flour. Instead of adding nuts, I put 1/2 cup almost butter in the batter. Baked them 40 minutes (i didn't say how long in the recipe). They were great, and so nutritious! I think I might try making them with applesauce instead of strawberries next time, because I have tons of applesauce on hand.
    Thanks so much!
    P.S. my toddler loved them, too!

  • TOPPING:

    3 tbsp. flour
    2 tbsp. firmly packed brown sugar
    1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
    2 tbsp. butter
    1/4 c. chopped walnuts

    In small bowl combine flour, brown sugar and cinnamon. Using pastry blender or fork, cut in butter until mixture is crumbly. Stir in walnuts. Sprinkle over batter. Bake at 375 degrees for 18 to 23 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 3 minutes; remove from muffin cups. Makes 18 muffins.
    Microwave directions: Prepare muffin batter and topping as directed above. Using 6 cup microwave - safe muffin pan, line each cup with 2 paper baking cups to absorb moisture during cooking. Fill lined muffin cups 2/3 full. Sprinkle topping over batter. Microwave 6 muffins on HIGH for 3 to 4 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, rotating pan 1/2 turn halfway through cooking. Remove muffins immediately from pan and immediately discard outer baking cups.

  • I just made blueberry muffins the other day from scratch and they were sooooo delicious! I usually bake corn muffins from scratch if I am going to make muffins. But since the blueberry ones turned out so well I might have to start making those more often.
