Thought these were great, i ommitted the oil and added about a half a cup of applesauce, used a half of a cup of honey instead of sugar and added a half of a teaspoon of baking powder. these were moist and rose beautifully. healthy and delicious!
I have no doubt that this recipe has the potential to be a very good muffin recipe, but it just didn't work for me this time. The batter was thick - which by itself is not a problem - but it hardly rose at all. The muffins were *way* too dense. We bake almost exclusively with whole wheat flour, so it wasn't the whole wheat texture that was getting to me. Our usual pumpkin muffins are light and fluffy, despite being 100% whole wheat.
I have a suspicion that the recipe should call for baking powder rather than baking soda, as there is really nothing acidic in the batter to activate the baking soda. I checked the recipe 3 or 4 times because I just couldn't believe it was calling for baking soda, but I in the end I didn't go with my gut and just followed the recipe as-is.
If I make this again, I would definitely substitute baking powder for baking soda. The flavors were very nice, but they can't quite overcome the rest of it. They're not bad enough to throw out, but definitely a big disappointment.
I used only whole wheat flour and changed the sweetener to just 1/2 cup honey. I did not put the topping on. These are great tasting muffins!
LOVE these muffins. Wanted a healthy, tasty muffin that let me use up all the extra apples my neighbor gave me. I used one 15 oz can of pumpkin and skipped the oil. I also subbed 1/2 cup of the sugar for raw honey for added health benefits and lower sugar (mixed the honey in with the wet ingredients,) and skipped the topping. After 25 minutes at 350 these were golden, moist and delicious. I think next time I'll skip the sugar altogether and just use honey.
I substituted applesauce for the oil and left off the topping, and added vanilla. They were amazing! I had no trouble getting them to rise with just the baking soda that was called for. I will make these again, my one year old said, "mmmmmm".
So amazing! I made these for the parent breakfast at my daycare. They were met with great reviews. I did exchange applesauce for the oil to make them a bit healthier. I wasn't thrilled on how the streusel topping came out, I will maybe leave that off completely the next time.
I love muffins in general, but am always looking for ways to make healthy ones that are still tasty. These are now top of my list! I used coconut oil instead of vegetable, added baking powder as another reviewer suggested, and also added some vanilla. They were awesome! And my toddler loves them as well. :)
Absolutely delicious. The perfectly moist, yummy, fallish muffin.
