This recipe makes a very good low sugar not-too sweet muffin. I did not have the amaranth or brown rice flour so substituted 1 cup of Bob's Red Mill Buttermilk Pancake & Waffle Mix. Also sprinkled cinnamon sugar on top before baking. Next time I'll make it with more rhubarb and no strawberries just because I like rhubarb a lot! Read More

I was not impressed with these muffins at all...i can't say they were bad because the taste was decent. but they did not rise at all and were like little dry unsweetened lumps in the pans. Read More

Healthy. Moist. I added more strawberries and rhubarb. Also used coconut flour instead of amaranth. I did not use vegetable oil as that is not healthy I used coconut oil instead. Next time I will add some milk or cream to thin it out a bit more. Read More

These muffins seem a little too bland for my liking. Next time I think I would add more fruit. Read More

These muffins are very good but they turned out a little dry. I didn't have the flours this recipe called for so I substituted some whole grain pancake flour I had in the house. I also added a little sprinkle of brown sugar on top. Next time I will add a little more rhubarb and strawberries. Read More
