"These muffins are very moist and full of spice. Whole wheat flour adds fiber without taking away any flavor. Try these for breakfast or a wholesome snack." — Anna

whole wheat flour
These are delicious! I had to make a substitution as I've never even seen dry buttermilk powder in my area. I used the standard vinegar and milk mixture in place of the powdered milk and water. My muffins were done in 23 minutes and were a hit! I will make these again.
My husband liked this, but I thought they needed something more. Perhaps some dried cranberries.
I made three small changes. Instead of plain water, I used a half cup brewed unsweetened honey vanilla white chai and I added about a half teaspoon of dried lemon peel and a half teaspoon nutmeg. I did soak my raisins in the hot chai for about twenty minutes to plump them up. These took 20 minutes at 350* and wow, do they smell amazing! I will be making these again for sure, but when I do, I'll use my changes and either add double the raisins or add in a cup or so of Hershey's cinnamon chips. I'd add a little more liquid next time, too or bake a minute or two less. They were just a touch dry. The flavor? Amazing. Great recipe easily bendable for small personal changes. NOTE: I did use almost all organic ingredients. I think that helped the quality of the muffin immensely.
After reading reviews, I went ahead and doubled the spices and added 1/2 tsp of nutmeg. With those changes, these muffins had really good flavor. I love the healthy aspect of them, but the whole wheat flour gave them a feeling of dryness. I think next time I'll try adding a banana or some pumpkin. I did sub chocolate chips instead of raisins because my kids don't care for raisins. The chocolate was very good in these.
These were delicious. I used drk brown sugar (personal preference) all White Whole Wheat flour, doubled the spices and added 1/4 tsp cloves. I also added 1 c. mini choco chips.
These are fantastic! My husband has eaten nearly half the tray already and I only pulled them out of the oven 30 minutes ago! I used 1/4 c white and 1/4 c brown sugar, added 1/4 tsp. of allspice and about 1/8 c more molasses because we love it, and used 1/2 c real buttermilk in place of the water and buttermilk powder.
These are fantastic and very easy to make. I doubled the amount of spice (just because I love spicy) I also added 1/2 teaspoon of cloves. Yum. I was just under the 1/2 cup mark for the molasses and completely forgot the baking soda (oops) but they were still great. I added 1 cup of chocolate chips. Perfect!
Good muffins. The kids really liked them. I didn't have powdered buttermilk so I used coffeemate creamer :) It seemed to be fine.
