    I gave this 4 stars just because i changed the recipe a little....the first time i made these they were super dense and not very sweet but still good...the second time i added nother egg, extra sugar and vanilla and they were excellent  -  29 Jun 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I added a half tsp. of maple flavoring and half tsp. of vanilla. I also used lowfat buttermilk. These baked up nicely but my kids found them a bit dry. Maybe another egg? They smell divine. This is a nice way to use up instant oatmeal, which I happen to always find cheap at my local discount grocery store.  -  18 Jun 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was a very mouthwatering recipe and it smelled delightful while baking in the oven. Instead of veg. oil I used half a stick of butter. I also baked it as a cake because I didn't have muffin tins but it came out great. Insted of instant oatmeal packets I used oatmeal, brown suger and a little bit of maple suryp.  -  25 Jun 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
