    This is a good muffin. I only got 24. It would be nice for this to be updated as to amt of batter per muffin or if mini muffin. Especially for those of us counting carbs. Spark uses this on meal plan for diabetics, who knows if we are getting it right. - 1/14/12

    I agree with most of the comments already posted. The muffins were yummy. The title is muffins and not mini-muffins and the recipe doesn't specify, so I used a standard muffin tin filled about 2/3 full. I got 24 muffins which doubles the calories. - 9/15/09

    I add just a dash or two of cinnamon to give them an extra layer of flavor. It's just what they need! I do not buy Splenda or buttermilk, but using regular sugar and 2% makes them out to be only 125 calories per serving, and that's using a regular muffin tin. Bravo! I eat one almost every morning! - 1/21/10

    It is particularly bad that this recipe is an editor's choice recipe when the serving, and therefore nutritional data is so far off. If you tried to stretch this recipe to 50 muffins, they would be so small that at 400 degrees for 20 minutes they would be burnt to a crisp. - 4/14/07

    The whole batch has come up to 2545 calories, and it looks like I can make about 24 muffins which is a little more than 100 calories per muffin. So, anyone who makes this just needs to know to divide the number of muffins you get into 2545 calories and that is how many calories per muffin. - 5/14/10
