I made this recipe exactly but substituted almond milk. The muffin its self turned out wonderful. Not getting a dry texture like other reviews said. This recipe is an excellent base for making oatmeal muffins but just understand that one its own there is not much flavouring here. I added chopped apples and cinnamon and they turned out great. Will make again. Read More

This recipe is a keeper only because it's basic. I followed the recipe to a T (except I used coconut oil instead of canola) and they were incredibly bland. I whipped up a cream cheese frosting to make them edible (they were that bland). In the future I'd add fruit or chocolate chips or peanut butter etc. Read More

These muffins were very dry. The second time I made them I even added extra oil to no effect. Even baked them a couple minutes less. Read More

Made these for my husband's lunch box. They were a bit messy to take to work but fine for home. Tasty and loved the streusel. Read More

I made this muffin step by step and they tasted like nothing... Almost a bread. The only thing that was sweet tasting was the top part Read More

These were very easy to make. I followed the recipe as is the first time but found them a bit bland. Because we use unsalted butter the second time around I added a pinch of salt to the streusel and about 1/2 tsp to the muffins along with some cinnamon and nutmeg. Read More

This is the second time I've made this recipe. First time I added raisins walnuts and cinnamon. Good but a bit dry and bland. Second time I tried carrot dates cinnamon nutmeg and cloves and still bland. I just realized there is no salt in the batter. I think that is the problem and I'll try again adding salt next time!
