Spiced Pumpkin Molasses Muffins Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 3)
Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2009
I like these muffins! They are the type that you don't feel like you're eating a cake - great breakfast muffin. I love that they don't have a ton of sugar. I didn't have flax, so I added more oats, and used fresh pumpkin from Halloween :) I also only had vanilla yogurt, and still added the vanilla essence, didn't seem to make much of a difference. They did turn out a little dry, next time I'll add more pumpkin. The molasses taste is just perfect!!

OK, I really wanted to like these muffins. They have healthy ingredients and are fun to make. But, the taste did not appeal to me and my family! I made the first batch, exactly as the recipe said and after one bite did not eat them. A couple of weeks later I thought I must have made an error somewhere, so darn if I didn't make them again. This is a lot of preparation work folks! This time they were a little dry ( I overcooked them to get to the point where an inserted toothpick came out clean) but the real problem was the clove flavor- way too strong. I would leave this out. Second thing- the pumpkin seeds are tough as nails! Why put these on there? Anyway, my very non-picky family didn't finish even one muffin. My opinon, I know some reviewers liked them.

My kids didn't like it to spicy for them. I like it, but it's not my favorite pumpkin muffins recipe. I have a flax seed meal recipe for muffins that you can be creative and add any kind of fruits or/and vegetable, and I like that one better.

Wonderful--I think a muffin should be healthy, not a cupcake! Love the whole grain content, and flavor is fabulous! I did add a bit of coarse sugar to dress up the top. Kaye, if you don't use the flax, you may want to add a bit more oil so they won't be dry!

This is a good muffin...definitely more like a breakfast muffin than a "treat" muffin. Good, healthy ingredients. Great with peanut butter on them! I didn't make it exactly as stated, instead of adding nuts and raisins, I added a little more oatmeal. Also, I didn't have plain yogurt, so I used vanilla and reduced the brown sugar and eliminated the vanilla extract. Thanks!
