    yummy and super-easy to make. I substituted wholewheat flour and home-made oat milk. I was a little surprised though that after 25 minutes they still weren't as 'done' as i expected, eespecially since i used mini-muffin tins and not full size.  -  05 Dec 2011

    Altered ingredient amounts. i added about a tablespoon more sugar and oil, but it's just a personal preference really  -  25 Nov 2010
