Very simple and delicious. I only used 1/2 c syrup and added several tsp of flax seeds; the result was very yummy! My kids gobbled these up. Yield was 26 mini (1T batter) muffins, cooked in 15 mins. Read More

I'm not sure if I did something wrong but they turned out really mushy. I used 3 bananas no chocolate chips and replaced the maple syrup with honey. Baked at 350 for about 25 minutes. Not fluffy. Just wet and squishy. If I had baked them any longer they would have burned. Read More

I didn't have syrup so I used honey to make these. They were very very quick and easy and my kids loved them. I love this recipe and will use it again. 4 stars because all oats (which I love!) and no wheat does give any baked goods a kind of rubbery texture. Read More

I mixed the ingredients in a bowl before realizing I was supposed to use a blender/food processor so my oats were whole. I didn't change anything but did need an extra 10 mins. of baking time. The muffins were delicious and my kids ate them up. I will be making these again and again. Read More

Ok I amended my review from 1 star to 4 stars. I love warm muffins and these are not good warm they are mushy but when they are room temperature or cold they are really good. I definitely would like to make another attempt at making them. I want to blend the batter longer and cook longer without being disturbed because they sunk when I tested them with a toothpick when it was too early. Read More

Wow! I doubled the recipe and made 2 pans. They are beautiful fluffy and tender. I needed a dessert for guests but don't have flour in the house I found this recipe and it is just perfect. I blended them for a long time (5 minutes about) to get the batter smooth enough and they turned out great. I didn't even have muffin liners but they came out beautifully. I will definitely make these again. Read More
