not bad at all - I read some of the reviews before making it so I added a whole egg instead of 2 whites and a 1/2 cup of sugar istead of the 1/4 cup of honey - turned out great!

These were okay and tasty very virtuous, but I'm not sure if that's what I was looking for in a muffin. They can be made a bit more extravagant by brushing on a bit of honey after baking and topping with granulated sugar, then grilling (broiling?) them for a few minutes.

I really enjoyed this recipe. I used 1/2 cup of sugar instead of honey (none in the pantry = / ) and 1/2 cup of applesauce instead of the vegetable oil (for healthier AND added apple flavor!) Also, I added one packet of instant oatmeal (to boost protein and texture!). After filling the muffin cups i made a mixture of - 2 TBS butter substitute (melted), - 2 TBS brown sugar, 1/4 cup granola cereal and sprinkled on top to make a sort of crunch topping. The turned out very tasty! A bit denser and less moist than a normal muffin, but c'mon people! It's a VERY healthy recipes, don't expect it to taste like the 800 calorie starbucks muffin! I will definately make them again!

This really is a good recipe. I've been using it as a base recipe for muffins. For raisin bran muffins, I substituted half of the flour for bran and switched the apples for raisins. I also put much more cinnamon in there. Another variation I enjoyed was substituting half of the flour for corn meal and using bluberries instead of apples. Omit the cinnamon in this variation. Add some vanila instead. I've been making these muffins vegen by using soy milk and a vegen egg replacer. Works very well. One other thing I found is that the recipe is really small. I like having larger muffins with a nice size head on them. I either double or tripple this recipe. A very good recipe and an excelent place to start creating your own muffins.

This is a wonderful recipe! I like the fact that it has a low sugar content also; the honey gives it a kick! Absolutely delicious. I added raisins too.

nice recipe- used 1 whole egg and used 1/2 cup of white sugar instead of honey and also added blueberries with apple just because I had them handy.

I like how these muffins are so healthy. I do think they need a little extra sweetness as well. I will try adding raisins next time.. I will make again. Thank you

Taste ok....I put in a little sugar and they were still needed a little sweetness. I suggest adding at least 1/4 c of sugar along with the honey. My toddler loves them. I will make them for her again.
