    Made it healthier. This was a quick recipe. The texture was light and moist. I substituted orange juice for 1/2 of the liquid (still using buttermilk for the other half), drained apple sauce for the oil and honey to sweeten. Good with peanut butter!  -  08 Oct 2008


    Used different ingredients. I was prepared to love this recipe because I like my muffins not very sweet. However, and maybe it's because I substituted soy milk for the buttermilk, the texture turned out a bit too chewy for my taste. I added chopped walnuts, sultanas and dried cranberries. Overall, an OK muffin, but there are lots of other healthy muffin recipes out there that taste better than this.  -  08 Oct 2008


    Used different ingredients. These came out OK, a bit dry but it could be because they were overcooked. I probably won't make them again only because the sodium is very high for my diet needs, but maybe. I used extra wholemeal flour instead of the rye just because that's what I had on hand, and also added walnuts, sultanas, half a chopped up banana and a diced peach. They didn't keep well, because of the peach so I highly recommend omiting that.  -  08 Oct 2008
