    Used different ingredients. Cut down the oil to 1 TBSP. Added 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon and 8 TBSP oats. Delish! Would be great with chocolate chips!  -  14 Jul 2008


    Altered ingredient amounts. These muffins are really easy to make and very good. I do recommend adding more walnuts then the recipe calls for. And i used one whole egg and one egg white.  -  14 Jul 2008


    Lovely recipe easy to make, loved the adjustments of one egg and one egg white, one tblspoon of oil, oats instead of walnuts and a tsp of cinnamin. My oven is pretty fierce and found 12/13 mins on 170 ample time for a perfect muffin.  -  15 Mar 2012
