I really liked these muffins, though I made a few changes. I used whole-wheat flour and omitted the anise seeds and ginger, which I don't like. I halved the recipe and it made 6 small muffins that tasted really good! I'll make these again, but next time with baking soda to make them a little less dense.

The anise seed is very strong and my first try came out tasting like black licorice muffins. The second time I replaced the anise seed with nutmeg and it tasted better. The texture is a little too chewy for my taste.

MMMM, MMMM, YUMMY! These are the most scrumptious apple muffins I've ever tasted! They're so yummy and moist, I love the texture! They puffed up so nicely! I doubled the recipe and still only made 12, they're better this way. The more apples the better. Yum Yum.

I made this recipe for my dad and he loved it!

Although they tasted okay, I found them more like a pound cake then a muffin. I tried making them twice and they came out the same. I don't think I will use this recipe again.

I looked up tis recipe on all recipes after going apple picking. Recipe was easy and was a great way to get my kids to eat apples. They freeze well also.

I tried this recipe to see how nonfat muffins would turn out. Well it wasn't a big success. The texture isn't muffin-like at all. I won't make this again.

These muffins were awful. They were dense and the outside was chewy. They were also lacking flavor (which I don't believe was due to my leaving out the anise seed). I should have read the reviews first, but was in a hurry to make something to go with dinner and now I'm sorry.
