I made these as written, with raisins, except for substituting olive oil for the butter. They were moist but light and tender. Next time I will try dried cranberries and nuts! Thank you for the recipe. Read More

I was looking for a recipe with healthier flour and no sugar added. This somehow popped up and I made it this evening. I followed the recipe exactly (except , no raisins) and the muffins came out moist and delicious. I cooked them for 20 minutes and my 1 year old son devoured one before bed. Next time I might add some chocolate chips to half the batch :) Read More
