  • I wish I had read the reviews before I made these. They dry, heavy, and tasteless. My husband hated them and he likes pumpkin muffins! - 10/29/10

  • Wow..the only way I was able to eat these was with jelly. They had no taste. If I dare make them again I will use less flour, and more pumpkin & sugar for sure! I wish I wouldve read the recommendations beforehand! - 11/28/08

    These were NOT GOOD. Very bland and dense. Not sweet or savory just dense and flavorless. Save your ingredients and opt to try a different recipe. - 9/7/08

  • It was great to find a recipie that called for fresh pumpkin! It was hard to tell that it was in the muffins however. Good muffins. - 8/14/08

  • I made this and loved it. I made 2 changes to the recipe: I used splenda instead of brown sugar, and added 1/3 cup of non fat yogart to help with the dryness. It was very good. I would make it again. - 7/28/08

  • I make this recipe, but I made a few changes based on other ratings. I added more spice, used white flour, and added baking powder. My son loved these. - 7/13/08

  • These were good. Just needs a little changing. - 6/23/08

  • Light and not sweet. Next time I will add more spice (maybe pumpkin pie spice) instead of just cinnamon. Maybe even add in some dark chocolate chips for some added sweetness. Perfect non-guilt breakfast or snack. - 5/25/08

  • These were pretty good. I used a whole can of pumpkin. I think next time I will try with only 1.5 cups of the wheat flour because they are pretty heavy and doughy. - 4/26/08

  • I also used canned pumpkin, and I think next time I will use the whole can. Maybe I'll also throw in a few walnuts. Tasty, but not too sweet. - 4/14/08

  • Good recipe, easy to follow! Great for breakfast! I did add extra pumpkin pie spice (nutmeg ect) it added alittle more flavour! - 1/7/08

  • I have not made this yet though I have been looking got a pumpkin recipie that is low in fat because I can not eat more that 10g of fat a day - 11/6/07

  • These are pretty good. Taste better with a pat of Smart Balance on them when warm. Don't think you would have a problem with overinduging as not too sweet. Recipe does not say how many cranberries to use. I also used the canned pumpkin and now wish I had used the whole can and will next time. - 10/23/07
