    These are so good, and easy to make. My family loved them, and told me that they are something I will need to make more often. - 6/2/13

    I love these muffins ! For me personally, they are quite addictive ! And inexpensive to make ! They are a huge hit in our house. Sometimes I haven't had the unsweetened applesauce around & so I use whatever I have & they still turn out great ( just a tad more sugar in them). Give them a try! - 11/4/11

    Very Good
    really easy. i substitued whole wheat flour, real butter for the oil, and added crushed walnuts and dried cherries! made a vanilla sea salt frosting (just a tiny bit on them)and it transformed it into a muffin/cupcake, great alternative for cupcakes! - 7/3/11

    Good! Did not do the cinnamon & sugar on top, I added it in the mixture based on some of the other comments. I also added vanilla to the steel cut oatmeal & raisins. They came out a bit chewy, but i tried to avoid over mixing. I will make this again. - 1/10/11
