    Very Good
    This is my second Spark recipe and I love these muffins! I put a T of cinnamon in them...because I like cinnamon...the rest is fantastic! Great job! - 2/6/11

    I made these and found that they were very moist and dense. I liked that they could be frozen for later. I didn't do a recipe analysis so I suggest you do it yourself. - 3/5/07

    These had no flavor and were dry and crumbly. Perhaps could add some more milk or fat free yogurt to moistent hem up. Also I found that when I plugged the ingredients into the recipe calcualtor I got completely different nutritional values. - 3/2/07
