    Great! I made some changes: used half whole wheat and half white flour, applesauce instead of oil, omitted the nuts, and substituted craisins for the raisins. I used eggbeaters instead of whole eggs, and I added 1/8 tsp baking soda to avoid heaviness, & brown sugar instead of Splenda. Fluffy yum! - 1/10/11

    Good muffins! I quadrupled the recipe, why dirty baking dishes for only 6 muffins??!? Used 1 cup whole wheat flour and 1/2 cup spelt, remainder of the flour was white, one less egg cause I only had 3 and they turned out great! Used non-stick muffin papers, worked amazing :) - 1/13/09

    These are very good. I made them this morning and had one for lunch with my salad. The only thing I would do different is I made them in the paper cupcake holders. I should have just sprayed the pan with Pam! They stick to the paper like glue! But they are GOOD! - 5/5/08

    Great recipe, this is my 2nd time making these muffins within the last week. The 1st time I made them I need up with 12 mini muffins not realizing that the mixture only makes 6 muffins. So i doubled the recipe this time to get 12 muffins out of it, my hubby & son enjoyed. I,m baking them now. - 10/21/12

    I baked them in paper cups & we had no trouble peeling off the paper--maybe because I baked them about 4 minutes longer? They didn't look quite ready at 25 mins. But with the extra baking they were great--we ate them as dessert. - 6/15/08
