“These muffins are the tastiest little things. The good thing about them is that there is just the right amount of sweetness to them- like scones, which makes them more of a healthy afternoon (or any time) snack, rather than an oversweet desert. This recipe uses Stevia extract instead of sugar (to reduce the calorie count and to make them that much healthier), but if you do want to turn this into a dessert, you should replace it with 1 cup of sugar (raw demerara sugar, or evaporated cane juice.) Also, when making these muffins, if really makes a difference if you're ingredients are organic, especially the bananas, pitted bates, sunflower kernels, and rice milk (to an extent). But then again this rule goes for almost all cooking.”
