  1. I have made these and they are great! Do you know any way to adjust the recipe for a bundt pan? Do you think it would do well in a pan like that?

  2. I substituted dark brown sugar for the topping, and replaced 1 cup granulated sugar for 1/2 cup brown sugar in the batter. Plus one half cup more strawberries and some oats in the batter as well. Came out so well balanced, beautiful!

    Next time I would like to double the amount of struesel on top and use turbinado sugar. Thanks for the simple recipe.

  3. If you make these in a cupcake pan how long would you cook them and just one large scoop of batter ?

  4. Just made these with the overripe bananas we seem to have each week. I like the flavor, though I’m more inclined toward sweeter muffins, so maybe I could have gone with more sugar, or used brown sugar instead. The very top-center was still just a little mushy, I pulled them out at about 13 minutes (after the 5 min high-temp). But as they cool, they seem to be drying up a little. I don’t mind the mush, others might. Could have made 13 muffins with as much batter as I had, but sticking to 12 made them stand nice and tall. Thanks!

  5. I made these tonight and they turned out beautifully. I used frozen berries. The muffins are moist and not too sweet, as you mentioned. Thank you for the recipe. I will definitely be making this again!

  6. I just made these, following the recipe exactly. Needed to leave them in the oven a tad longer since I wanted the tops browned a bit, but otherwise these are some of the most delicious muffins I’ve ever made! and super simple. I love that they aren’t super sweet, and the fruit makes them taste so fresh. Awesome recipe.

  7. Muffins were really good! Everyone in house liked them. Do you know the nutrition values for them? Wondering how many calories, etc
