They were delicious, moist and fluffy. I made some changes as suggested by other members. I used 2 cups of whole wheat flour, added 1 tea spoon cinammon and 1/2 of nutmeg. I substitued the sugar with 1/4 cup of splenda and added 1/2 cup walnuts and used also canola oil. Thank you for the recipe, I did it 3 times and it was always the same result (very easy and delicious) By the way the cooking time was less than suggested by the recipe and be sure if you have them for breakfast you won't feel hungry at all. I eat them one hour before I start fasting. They make you feel full.

These could be good if you make some changes. They tasted decent when they came out of the oven, but when the cooled off they became very hard. Use apple sauce instead of oil, to make moist. Add like a cup of blueberries. Add more sugar. The recipe was just lacking in taste and moisture. Add 2-3 TB of honey.

I thought these muffins were pretty good. I tried to be healthy and used 2 cups whole wheat flour and substituted applesauce for the oil. I will make again. Thank You.

For some variation, substitute apple sauce for vegetable oil and add 1 tsp. ground cinnamon and 1 tsp. ginger. The smell will warm your whole house.

I modified this a lot -- used 1 1/2c whole wheat, 1/2c oatmeal. Replaced 1/2 the white sugar with brown sugar, used applesauce instead of oil and added a lot of spices: cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and cardamom. Yum!

i used all whole wheat flour (no white flour), added about 1/3 cup of chocolate chips and sprinkled sugar on the tops of these before baking and they came out awesome!

I used a few different suggestions from other reviews. I recently had my gall bladder removed and I am trying to make recipes with low fat ingredients. I substituted applesause(homemade) for the oil,used all wheat flour, used no fat milk and added 1/2 tsp each cinnamon and nutmeg, used 1/4 tsp of ginger and I sprinkled the tops with sugar before baking. The muffins came out moist and delicous. However, the next time I will not use any ginger. Taste is too strong in this recipe. I can't wait to try again.

Very good, basic muffin recipe. Can be easily adapted by adding fruit, etc. Add chopped chives to the batter and a cube of cheese in the center of each muffin tin before baking for "dinner" mufffins.
