    I made them even less caloric! I substituted the sugar for Splenda, used applesauce instead of oil, as I do when I bake a cake, and loved the flavor even more. This version brings the calories down to just over 100 calories a muffin! - 2/27/08

    If you are looking for more flavor, try using a little less milk, and replacing it with lemon juice ( about 1 tbls or so). I do this all the time in recipes, and it makes a huge difference in the flavor. - 8/31/08

    Yeah! Finally, a delicious muffin recipe that isn't full of Sodium. These freeze well and can be enjoyed with a short zap of the microwave or toaster oven. I decreased the sugar a tad and they were still yummy. THANKS SPARKPEOPLE - 2/27/09

    Why does the calorie size change from the email about this (NUTRITION INFO (per 1 muffin serving)
    Calories: 119.4) to what is listed above. This isn't the first recipe I've noticed that does that.

    I substituted splenda for sugar, applesauce for oil and added vanilla and a tablespoon more milk because I didn't realize it was a dough not a batter. I will continue to play with it. Enjoyable. - 6/20/08

    I made this recipe, but tweaked it a bit to make 6 muffins for only 135 calories. I use egg substitue, splenda, and applesauce in place of the oil. Came out so good! - 6/17/09

    Just got them out of the oven. Subbed applesauce for the oil & added a little extra milk. Made them as jumbos, so I also baked them for 24 min instead of the 17. Taste very good & will definately make again. - 7/12/09

    I made this recipe except I used oatbran flour. I also made a batch of an old recipe of mine using butter. I brought bopth to work and my co-workers liked the healthier ones better, not knowing at the time I was "testing" them - 3/20/08

    I thought these turned out really yummy. I added a bit more milk and more berries. The batter was more like dough which made it a little hard to get into the muffin papers. This would be good as a loaf instead. Will make again. - 6/14/09

    These muffins were pretty good. I had to add more milk than this recipe calls because my mixture was too crumbly. Thawing my blueberries beforehand might not be a bad idea either. I also subbed Splenda for sugar. - 6/17/08

    My family LOVED these muffins! My husband is fussy about blueberry muffins. I forgot to put the tsp. of sugar on the muffins. There was no need. They tasted great! - 6/21/09

    These muffins were a big hit at a brunch I was chairman at. Making 6 dozen was a little challenging, but with help of a few friends it so in no time done. Using fresh berries picked was great I recommend this for families with kids. They had a helping hand in these.
    Rating is a 4 in my book - 6/16/09

    These are very bread-like, but taste good. When I made the batter, it was as thick as cookie dough. I just added more milk to thin it out a little, but left it fairly thick and spooned into the muffin tin. They taste fine. - 6/15/09

    These were okay. They tasted more like blueberry cornbread rather than muffins. I just prefer more cake-like muffins than cornbread-like. - 3/29/09
