    Very moist and flavorful. I used skim milk/white vinegar instead of buttermilk. My kids think these healthy muffins are a "treat!" - 7/27/10

    These are great! Had a great texture, very moist and muffin-y. I baked these in a 9x13 and they were perfect. I also subed low-fat yogurt for buttermilk. - 4/15/10

    These are delicious muffins! I made them in 18 tins so mine are slightly bigger and I made a couple of substitutions:
    -- used 1% milk plus 2TBSP fresh lemon juice to make the buttermilk (just let it sit for five minutes before using)
    -- used melted butter for the oil
    Perfectly sweet tart muffins! - 6/9/10

    Very good, although they did stick to the muffin wrappers more than I would have liked. How do you fix that? I wonder how they would taste if I added some chopped strawberries. - 5/18/11

    Spray the wrappers with nonstick spray.

  • The nutritional breakdown includes coconut oil, which isn't included in the recipe...I don't get it. This is important to me, because my husband can have NO saturated fat and minimal other fats....please clarify. - 3/23/14

    Unless it says otherwise, these are regular sized muffins, rather than minis, right? - 3/22/14
