I see a lot of people who say this recipe is bland. One reason for that is it is supposed to be a diabetic recipe. So for all the non-diabetics, adding more sugar may improve the flavour. I have also seen some reviews that they were chewy or tough - that means you are over-mixing the batter. Remember- muffin batter is only mixed until just combined. Just some hints I thought may help.

I found them dry, bland and rather heavy. Almost like big dry tea biscuits.

This was great! I added more apple because I had it on hand and used 1/2 cup sugar because of the other review, but really I could of went with the 1/4 cup. Light and fluffy. I will make these again for sure. Thank you

Very easy and fast to make. I added more apples. It turned out great, not too sweet, which was what I wanted. Will definately bake more of this.

Pretty good and easy muffins. Next time I will add more cinnamon and apples. Nuts would also be a yummy addition.

Very rubbery and dull tasting. Did not over mix, have done muffins before NOT to over blend. Kids did not like it, and neither did anyone else. Had to throw them all out, too chewy and rubbery to eat and not enough sweet taste to it.

I was a little disappointed with this recipe. The Muffins were dry and dull.
