  1. About the banana bran nut muffins—It tells how much carbs, sodium, fat, etc but doesn’t mention what the sugar content is. I’ve noticed that many recipes do this. Bailee

  2. Dear bailee,

    The grams of carbohydrate listed represent the total number of grams of carbohydrate, including simple sugars, starches, and other carbohydrates. We do not list simple sugars separately because they affect blood glucose no differently than starches and have the same number of calories per gram.

    You may want to check out dietitian Amy Campbell’s blog entry “Carb Counting” for more details on this subject.

  3. I modified the recipe using oat bran instead of wheat bran, and chopped walnuts instead of pecans. Also included non-dairy chocolate chips (antioxidants). They came out wonderful…a hit with fasmily and friends!

  4. Absolutely wonderful! Moist & very flavorful. Substituted Domino’s Splenda brown sugar. We’re going to make an extra batch to freeze. It took four average-sized bananas to get 1-1/3 cups.
