    Amazing muffins! Can't believe how sweet, with just fruit added, no sugar. Used fresh cranberries, added some shredded carrot and fresh nutmeg - huge difference. Really moist for whole wheat muffins, Thanks! - 2/5/11

    Very Good
    Not bad for a healthy muffin. Could've used more banana flavour. The cranberries give them a nice zing. The kids are enjoying them at this very moment, so that's a good thing. Unfortunately I didn't have maple syrup on hand so I used corn syrup. - 1/28/11

    Nice and moist. Accidentally used ginger instead of nutmeg; will make sure to use nutmeg next time. My 6-year old likes them, too. - 12/5/10
