    I had a "muffin making day" earlier in the week... I made three kinds and froze them. These were pretty good. Not my favorite, but still pretty good. - 8/2/08

    I filled my muffin pans up to the top on these and it made 12. They had good flavor but they were a little heavy. I agree with less blueberries next time...maybe 1 cup instead of 2. I also used frozen blueberries and they worked just fine. - 7/1/09

    I thought these where very good nice and sweet but next time I will use a bit less blueberries only because I think it was a bit to much. I could only get 15 muffins out of this recipe but well worth the time to make then will be making them again. - 5/6/09

    Thank you for this recipe !!! I made 1 1/2 batches to have enough to freeze some. DH told me that I couldn't freeze any--they will be gone before I know it. The only substitutions that I made was to cut the splenda by a 1/4, and add 1/4 cup sugar to help them brown better.
    Breakfast is served. - 4/27/09

    This is a good recipe. Changes i made: used 100% whole wheat flour. used olive oil spread instead of butter. put a touch of cinn/sugar on top. made a 1/2 batch. we didn't need 20 muffins. hard pressed to get even 9 decent sized muffins from 1/2 batch. they were done in 15 minutes @400 degrees. - 8/7/08

    Great! Easy to make, PERFECT amount of blueberries, and great amount of carbs. This was my first time cooking with whole wheat flower and I love it. Also I used the Splenda plus fiber. Will definitely be making again! - 6/8/11

    We are a family of 4 and everyone thought these muffins were OK. Edible. Better than the last recipe I tried. Those muffins ended up in the trash :( I hate wasting.
    Sometimes baked goods are better the next day. I'm hoping that is the case. - 7/8/10

    Not enough sweet taste for me, and the muffin was tough, but maybe I mixed it too much. - 8/1/08

    We split this recipe in half to make sure we would like it and now I'm sorry I didn't double it. My husband thinks they needed a little more Splenda...but they were great! Half a batch made 12 mini muffins. - 7/30/08

    These were very good. Next time I may add a tsp of vanilla to enhance the flavor. I also had a hard time making 20 muffins so I made 18 and recalculated the nutrition info. - 7/28/08

  • I used Turbinado sugar (1/2 cup). I used 1 cup frozen blueberries and I filled the muffin cups full and it made 12 muffins. Very good. - 7/22/13

  • I wonder how these muffins will taste by using almond flour instead of all purpose or whole wheat flour. I know the almond flour is lower in carbs. Just saying... - 6/11/13

  • The idea was things, but they seemed bland to me. Maybe adding more splenda would improve things. - 2/16/11
