Refined flour is unhealthy and is advisable for kids to avoid it as much as possible. However I have added nutrient rich oats, banana and walnuts to make these muffins healthier.

Easy recipe, simple ingredients and delicious result! One thing to be careful about is sugar. Once i measured out one fourth cup of sugar, then powdered it and added the whole. The muffins turned out unpalatable sweet. Always measure sugar after powdering it as it expands in volume.

It is so soft that it melts in the mouth. Banana renders a very nice sweetness to the nutty taste of walnuts.

Tried this recipe but found one trouble that I think the butter quantity in the recipe seems to be lesser b'coz when I made these muffins I found little difficult to swallow.It seemed as if it is sticking to the all okay and taste was very good.

Since i am a non-vegetarian i have tried these with egg too (1/2 egg to the ingredients listed in the recipe). They taste equally great with/without eggs. Yummy and healthy too.
