    I liked this recipe. I used Splenda for the sweetener and added 1/2 tsp allspice, 2 Tbsp Splenda Brown Sugar Blend and 1/2 cup mix-ins (cranberries, walnuts, etc.; in whatever ratio you like.) Also,I found that crushing the cereal for the last step made a better tasting muffin that rose more. - 3/4/08

    These are great! Very moist and easy to make. If you don't have buttermilk 1cup milk and a Tbl of vinegar let sit a few minutes works just as good. - 11/21/07

    I absolutely LOVED these muffins! I used whole wheat flour instead of white flour and Honey Bunches of Oats instead of the Post Bran cereal. Agree with other comments that one cup of sugar is plenty...especially with my using Honey Bunches of Oats. - 8/17/10

    Wonderful!!! My six-year-old daughter even loved them. Our only problem was trying to keep ourselves from eating too many. - 4/25/08
