Great, especially considering they're nonfat and very easy to make. We'd gotten a huge box of fresh prunes on sale, so I made one batch following the recipe exactly and another with the addition of ground flax seed (and water to compensate) as another reviewer recommended. Both turned out well.
I really thought these would be good. They really werent. Noone liked these. They just weren't for us. I think if you added an egg, vanilla and some spices they might be okay. I was really bummed.
These muffins are vastly improved by the addition of 1 egg and 1/2 a banana. They become moist and fluffy, though not completely fat free. My toddler loves them now!
Dense, moist, and chewy! I added a couple more prunes because I used 50/50 whole wheat:all-purpose flour. I think I'd use less of the whole wheat next time though. I also added some vanilla and made 6 regular muffins instead of mini-muffins. I'm sure the mini-muffins would be nice because they're so dense. I really like that they're fat-free and good for you!! =o)
For a fat free muffin I thought they were pretty good. I doubled the recipe and by doing this I found the dough a bit too stiff so I added another tablespoon of water....this made them better to spoon out into the tins....it is a rather stiff dough though but bakes up real nice. If using paper liners after cooling them put them in a large zip lock bag....the moisture will loosen up the papers a bit. Will make these again.
Simply gooeylicious! I've even devised my own variation: substituting spelt flour, and adding 1/4 cup of flaxseeds to the mixture (add another 1/2 cup of water to compensate for flaxseed expansion).
I made these today, my first attempt at muffins; they were really easy, and came out very light with a nice texture. I had to make one change as we dont usually have prunes, so I used dried apricots instead. I might stick with the apricots and increase the honey next time as I'd like it a little sweeter. Thank you for what is obviously a foolproof recipe!
I added a few extra prunes, since I was trying this recipe just so I could use up all the prunes I had. I added an extra 1/2 cup honey since I wanted to cancel out the prune taste, and I made 6 full size muffins. As expected, these didn't rise much (due to the changes I made), but they sure were good anyway. All these prunes will get used thanks to Deepti. :)
