quick cooking oats

whole wheat flour

Easy to make. The combination of these great spices gives the muffins a unique taste compared to the typical muffin recipe. Family loved it.
They are decent muffins. I would probably make them again. I would add a half cup of brown sugar or at least double the molassas and raisins.
Instead of the yogurt, I used half sour cream and half evap milk. Also, I added 2t. vital gluten.
I made these into mini muffins, and they went fast! I used currants instead of raisins to keep with the mini idea. I used baking powder instead of baking soda due to personal preference, and it worked out great. The spices and wholesome ingredients have given me another recipe to make again! Thanks!
These muffins were fantastic! I was looking for something with great flavor without all the sugar. I used grape nuts cereal since I didn't have any wheat germ and it worked just fine. When I make them again, I will probably add some chopped walnuts or pecans.
Love these healthy muffins!! I left out the egg, and used a single serving of applesauce, because my son is allergic to eggs. I cut down the raisins to 1/2 cup and added 3/4 cup brown sugar. STUPENDOUS!!!
For me, these turned out really.......wet. I mean, they were moist, but it wasn't as firm as most muffin recipes I make. They kind of fell apart, really. I followed the recipe closely and made no changes other than adding a teaspoon of vanilla and a teaspoon of baking powder. There might be a little too much molasses and I'd cut back on the yogurt next time. I even "soaked" the wheat germ and oats in the wet ingredients before folding in the dry. Good starting point for me to play with and try again. I think it has potential. NOTE: For me, this made more than twelve servings. I got 12 regular sized muffins and 12 mini muffins. Not a huge deal but when the recipe wasn't as successful, it's a huge bummer.
Very moist and tasty for such a healthy muffin! I didn't have any plain yogurt so I used vanilla instead. For my own taste I would add a bit of brown sugar (1/4-1/2 cup). . . but I loved that there was no sugar since I made them mainly for my toddler who LOVED them as the recipe stated. Definitely a keeper of a recipe.
These are delicious! I've been on a bit of a "healthy muffin" kick lately (they're great for a quick breakfast, but I'd rather not be eating glorified cake every day), and these are among my favourites so far. The only changes I made were to replace the butter with applesauce, use 1/2 cup raisins and 1/2 cup bittersweet chocolate chunks (SO GOOD), and because the batter tasted somewhat bitter to me when it was all mixed up, I added 1/4 cup honey and 1/4 cup brown sugar, based on suggestions from other reviewers. I will absolutely be making these again!
