    Good recipe but the Margarine MUST be melted before you add it or you get big cold lumps you can't get rid of and then the muffins are ruined.  -  10 Oct 2011


    They are very tasty. I found them a little salty and I only put in a quarter teaspoon of salt. Also, my oven runs hot, 25 - 30 mins at 180C and they were done. I would try this recipe again with other cereals, e.g. granola or fruit and fibre. Also, make sure to bake them in a muffin tin, I tried with just paper cases and they spread a lot! I also took the advice of the first reviewer and melted the butter.  -  21 Jul 2015


    These have gone down well. I added a piece of walnut to the top of each muffin. I note that the recipe says "Serves 8" and then tells you to grease 12 muffin cups. I made 12 but they were rather small. Perhaps this quantity of the mixture is better suited to making 8 rather than 12 muffins.  -  12 Oct 2013
