The verdict? Mimi’s whole-wheat giant banana-strawberry muffins are pretty good! Granted, my muffins were not whole-wheat as I didn’t have any whole-wheat flour, but otherwise, I followed the recipe exactly and was pleased with how they came out. More important than my four out of five stars rating? My kids loved them. I could really stop the post there, because if my kids like it, it’s good.
I did love the slices of strawberry in the muffins and the banana adds a great extra but subtle sweetness. They stayed very moist- I can attest to this because I just ate the last one a few minutes ago (two days after making them). The only reason I didn’t give it five stars is probably because I have a ridiculous sweet tooth and am used to my muffins being, well, sweeter. That’s probably my issue more so than Mimi’s though. Anyway, I would definitely recommend them and since my whole family loved them overall and they are fairly healthy to boot, I will absolutely be making them again.
Oh no. I just had to go to the allrecipes.com site to make sure I got the link correct for the muffins, and I found these. Bad news for this sweet tooth, my friends. Bad news. It is highly likely that you will find a post on these in the near future. I LOVE the Reese’s chocolate-covered peanut butter eggs, and these look amazing.
I’d better go back to reviewing books rather than food. It’s dangerous.
