  • I tried several recipes and this was the best! I only used the 1/2 c splenda and no sugar. I tossed in some flax seeds and dark chocolate chips, and made one batch with walnuts. I made these into loaves...and they taste way too good so portion control is harder! The orange added something special. - 7/25/12

  • WAY TOO SWEET. The Splenda overpowered the rest of the ingredients and left a horrible after taste. I would try it again but cut the Splenda down significantly. - 4/22/12

  • These are delicious. I used 3/4 cup of splenda and the juice of one Orange. It was hard to stop at just one. - 8/12/11

  • wowee!!! This is a great way to get rid of some overabundant zucchini from my garden (also makes neighbor points when I bake em up and give half away!) This makes 12 real muffins, not eensy weensy ones! I used egg substitute, added 1tbsp olive oil and handful of raisins. Tasty, filling, easy! - 7/23/11

  • These muffins are amazing! They are so filling and also very moist. I am definitely making these again. I might add some flax seed powder next time. - 2/24/11

  • Really good and moist. I used a peach yogurt because that is what I had and used 1/2 c of applesauce and deleted the orange juice. This will be a great breakfast food the the rest of the week. DH loves them too! - 5/15/10
