  • Incredible!

    They were great. I used the tablespoon of baking powder because of the whole wheat flour. I didn't think it affected the taste. I did not put in the salt. Next time I would like to try the suggestion of the oat bran. - 7/10/08

    These were really bad. Too much baking powder; I think it should be a teaspon NOT a tablespoon. - 6/10/08

  • I don't use the paper wrappers at all, just spray non stick spray on the muffin tin, that does cut down on the cooking time, however. But they pop right out. - 7/15/15

  • Totally delicious! I did everything exactly as it states, except I accidentally used a cup of flour instead of 3/4! Oops! Super tasty anyway :D only problem I have is that they stuck to the paper liners, but that may have had to do with the extra flour. Try them!! - 3/22/15

  • Made these yesterday and they are incredible! So moist! I switched the amounts for the whole wheat and all purpose flour to make them healthier, and sweetened with truvia instead of sugar (half the amount since truvia is sweeter). I will make these again! Perfect for a quick breakfast or snack. - 6/12/13

  • I made these according to the recipe except I added walnuts to a few for me. They are moist and tasty. I'll be making these again! - 2/18/13

  • I loved this recipe. I don't like to use the chemicals in artificial sweeteners, so I like low sugar much better. I used half the baking powder and substituted white whole wheat flour for all the flour. They were great and I don't feel deprived. - 1/1/13

  • Amazing... They are so light and fluffy and delicious... I can't believe the nutrition info is correct. I swapped out the sugar for Splenda and added 1/4 of mini choc chips. - 11/21/12

  • If you use foil baking wrappers instead of paper, the muffins won't stick! We made a couple changes and we loved these muffins. We reduced the baking powder to 1 tsp., added 1/2 of frozen, thawed blueberries, and added a little bit of cinnamon. They were very moist and my whole family enjoyed them! - 8/13/12

  • These are FANTASTIC! I make them every week for the ladies in my weight watchers group that I have coffee with afterwards. They get very upset when I don't bring them! Only 2 points per muffin. I sometimes add raisins (more points though) or 1 1/2 cups of frozen blueberrries (no extra points). Yum! - 8/8/12

  • I made these today. They were really good. I did tweak the recipe slightly. I used 1/2 cup self raising flour, 1/2 cup wholemeal self raising flour and 1/4 cup oat bran (and didnt use bakig powder). I used 3 medium bananas and I substituted the apple sauce for lite vanilla yoghurt.YUM! - 2/7/12

  • Love, love, love these! I use oat flour in place of AP flour. I used ground flax in place of the egg, Splenda in place of sugar and added a cinnamon/nutmeg/brown sugar spice combo I have. I made 9 muffins at 73 cal each. Add in 1/2 cup of mini chocolate chips and the calories bump to 104. - 12/29/11

  • these were awsome! I am pretty picky and these turned out great. I am surprised they are so low fat! I only put 1 Tsp of BP and added some cinnamon and didn't put any salt in.

  • I have tried these with Splenda and they are great! Found a very similar recipe by Spark-er "CHICKLET14580". My personal preference is to skip using paper cups. - 2/8/11

  • I also used Splenda. Agree with the baking powder comments but still tasted great! I had 2 tonight for a snack! But don't feel guilty as they were only 63 calories a piece! :) - 7/16/08

  • Very good, just let them cool before trying to peel and eat - half will stay on the paper liner. - 7/7/08

  • These are great! Definitely a teaspoon of powder, not a tablespoon. I subbed 1/4c of oat bran for the whole wheat flour. I also made 6 muffins, doubling the calories but making these more filling. They're PERFECT for before a morning workout. - 6/17/08

  • My lactose-intolerant family loved these.
    We will be making them again for sure.
    They are very light and yummy.
