  1. These muffins were really tasty. I baked them just as the recipe said. I used 1 cup of shredded coconut in the batter. I then topped them off with some chopped pecans and more shredded coconut. Yummy! TIP - To get your batter to dome, preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. As soon as - Read more ...

  3. These were far from being the "best ever", they were just basic muffins. I added 1/2 cup chocolate chip and increased vanilla extract, and they were just ok. Next time, I'll try to mix it even less and to bake them for only 20 minutes, maybe I'll like them better this way. P.S.: if you - Read more ...

  7. THESE WERE SOOOOO GOOD! I SUBSTITUTED 4OZ OF APPLESAUCE FOR THE OIL EGG BEATERS FOR THE EGG & USED SKIM MILK. FOR THE BATCH I MADE LAST NIGHT I USED SOME LEFT OVER DRIED PEACHES ALONG WITH SOME CANNED PEACHES & A LITTLE OF THE JUICE CHOPPED UP IN THE FOOD PROCESSOR. I ADDED A - Read more ...
  8. Very easy recipe! I tried a savory muffin first using cheddar, bacon and garlic and would definately cut down on the sugar. 3/4 cup is way too much for a savory muffin. As a blueberry or chocolate chip, they're perfect!
  9. Excellent recipe. For those watching their fat intake, I used no fat sour cream instead of the oil, and it makes them very moist. I also throw in some frozen blueberries for the antioxidant benefit, and hey, they taste great too! A keeper recipe.
  10. Excellent base recipe for all kinds of muffins. It adapted really well so several substitutions: I used vanilla soy milk in place of milk, and honey in place of sugar. I also added two bananas, cinnamon, and sprinkled oatmeal on top. They turned out fabulous! Thanks for the great recipe!
