    I adore your website and I’m cooking my way through it! I live in China and shortening is hard to come by. Do you think I could substitute it for butter in this recipe?
    All the best!

    nice to find your recipe – a little piece of home far from home 🙂 i subbed out flour for gluten-free flour mix (meant for breads) and it worked out yummy.. i did puree the banana first though with the other wet ingredients so make a thick paste so no gooey banana bits got in fights with the gooey chocolate bits and everything worked out wonderfully. They weren’t as puffy as i would have loved but it could be the flour. I was also delighted to see that they slid right out of the muffin pan with a small brush of oil instead of using those little paper cup things. Great recipe thanks for sharing the world. Erika, Germany (and Canada) 🙂

    I agree your banana muffins are the best I have ever had! They have made me the baking rockstar of the neighborhood! Can you tell me how many calories are in one? How many calories are in the black bean brownies? I plan to sell them at the school and am thinking of using the caloric amount as a marketing tool.
