If you're wanting a soft and sweet dessert muffin, this isn't the recipe for you. These muffins are only subtly sweet and definitely dense. Once or twice they've come out drier than I'd like. But the lack of sugariness is made up for in flavor complexity (especially if you toss in cranberries instead of raisins!) and they are really filling. Getting enough fiber is a challenge for me, since a lot of bran- and fiber-laden foods taste like sawdust, but this is a wholesome and tasty way to do it. I make these all the time, following the recipe almost exactly. Like I said, I sometimes throw in cranberries instead of raisins, or even mix them, and I always skip the malt barley flour. It's just not something I keep on hand, and I've found there's no significant difference in taste without it. Really excellent with a cup of strong coffee.
