    Wow! I used to make a very unhealthy banana nut chocolate chip muffin that all my friends and co-workers raved about. I just made these and they are delicious – just added some chopped walnuts and I have to say they are even better than the unhealthy ones! Can’t wait to try more of your recipes!!

    Could I use minute oats instead, like the breakfast instant oats?

    • http://www.busybuthealthy.com Kristine Fretwell

      You could, you’ll just need to blend them into flour.

  • Jeannevanderveen8

    I just made this. It was sooooo good! My husband and I loved it! 🙂

    • http://www.busybuthealthy.com Kristine Fretwell

      Yay! So glad you love them too!!

    Do you know how much stevia to use if I use stevia in the raw ?

    • http://www.busybuthealthy.com Kristine Fretwell

      If you use Stevia in the Raw, the baking one, it would be the same amount. If you use packets it would be around 10-12 packets. Kristine Fretwell, Busy But Healthy, http://www.busybuthealthy.com

    Again I must be a pain and ask…how much agave can I substitute for the Stevia?

    thanks <3

    • http://www.busybuthealthy.com Kristine Fretwell

      I’d start with 1/4 cup to 1/3 cup and go from there…see how sweet it is. Kristine Fretwell, Busy But Healthy, http://www.busybuthealthy.com

    ok question for you….where do you find Krisda stevia?
    can we use regular stevia instead of baking stevia? and if so …do you know HOW MANY PACKETS?

    • http://www.busybuthealthy.com Kristine Fretwell

      Krisda is in Canada. Packets are at Safeway, all the other products are here: http://www.lowcarbgrocery.com But you can definitely use stevia packets. Use 13 packets, and see how it tastes and adjust if need be. Stevia brands can be quite different with sweetness….
