    Delicious muffins and easy to make. Thanks for the recipe, I liked them so much I made another batch!  -  28 Sep 2012


    loved making these very easy to follow i ended up with so many that i had to dish them out in work  -  28 Sep 2013


    I don't normally review recipes that I make even if they're really good, but this one I had to. I traded in oil for 3/4 cup unsweetened applesauce, the brown sugar for Splenda for Baking, and added a banana because the ones I had were pretty small. Usually when I do this, my muffins come out hard and not as moist as the real recipes, but this one came out just AWESOME! I also added 3/4 tsp salt, 1 tblsp cinnamon and a small dash of cloves for more flavour. I will definitely be making this one of my staple recipes. Never have I made a muffin that tasted so delicious (and I make some at least once a week) and had only healthy ingredients. I'm so glad you decided to share your recipe! Thank you!  -  04 Apr 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
