The muffins you get from this recipe using all-purpose and whole wheat flour are great while still warm from the oven!

They were delicious, moist and fluffy. I made some changes as suggested by other members. I used 2 cups of whole wheat flour, added 1 tea spoon cinammon and 1/2 of nutmeg. I substitued the sugar with 1/4 cup of splenda and added 1/2 cup walnuts and used also canola oil. Thank you for the recipe, I did it 3 times and it was always the same result (very easy and delicious) By the way the cooking time was less than suggested by the recipe and be sure if you have them for breakfast you won't feel hungry at all. I eat them one hour before I start fasting. They make you feel full. Read More

These could be good if you make some changes. They tasted decent when they came out of the oven but when the cooled off they became very hard. Use apple sauce instead of oil to make moist. Add like a cup of blueberries. Add more sugar. The recipe was just lacking in taste and moisture. Add 2-3 TB of honey. Read More

For some variation substitute apple sauce for vegetable oil and add 1 tsp. ground cinnamon and 1 tsp. ginger. The smell will warm your whole house. Read More

I modified this a lot -- used 1 1/2c whole wheat, 1/2c oatmeal. Replaced 1/2 the white sugar with brown sugar, used applesauce instead of oil and added a lot of spices: cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and cardamom. Yum! Read More

I used a few different suggestions from other reviews. I recently had my gall bladder removed and I am trying to make recipes with low fat ingredients. I substituted applesause(homemade) for the oil,used all wheat flour, used no fat milk and added 1/2 tsp each cinnamon and nutmeg, used 1/4 tsp of ginger and I sprinkled the tops with sugar before baking. The muffins came out moist and delicous. However, the next time I will not use any ginger. Taste is too strong in this recipe. I can't wait to try again. Read More

Very good basic muffin recipe. Can be easily adapted by adding fruit etc. Add chopped chives to the batter and a cube of cheese in the center of each muffin tin before baking for "dinner" mufffins. Read More

i needed a quick healthy muffin recipe for my 2 stepkids...I only made have the recipe and subsituted a scant cup of Splenda for the sugar and used applesauce and cinnamon as recommended. My kids loved it! It was very moist and had a good light texture. Next time however I'm going to add more cinnamon and add other spices to make it more tasty. Definitely a keeper! Read More
