  • These are outstanding. This is my second time making them. I am not a good cook at all & It seems I can fool with this recipe however I feel like it and they turn out great! I use splenda brown sugar, wheat flour and am heavy on the spices. I threw in a banana today. Super good!!!! - 12/14/12

  • These are amazing muffins! I too substituted grated sweet potato for the pumpkin (as I did not have any) and they turned out amazing. Makes your house smell delicious while cooking too. Yum! - 3/11/11

  • Yummy! My 3yr old daughter help make this recipe, I've never seen her eat a whole muffin to herself! I guess it helped when she sprinkled on some organic chips! - bty, I always cook w/ stevia, depending what kind, I like the New Roots. I use about 1/4-1/2 the req. amount, however sweet u like it! - 10/8/10

  • Delicous! The only change I made was to use sweet potato instead of pumpkin (I was out of pumpkin). I thought they were a bit too sweet for my taste, so next time I will cut down on the sweetener. - 2/6/10

  • I made these last night and they are delicious, the recipe is a little dense compared to most muffins but it makes them twice as filling. - 11/11/09

  • I made these muffins on 9/23/09 for a morning meeting. They were well recieved (all gone!). I was able to make 24 muffins from the batter, which meantthe muffins were only 54 calories each (WONDERFUL). This really helped because I had cream cheese (I needed the calcium:))on mine. - 10/2/09
