Perfect if you like a little less sweet muffin, the sugar in this recipe comes from apple puree and is also packed with healthy grains.
Used different ingredients. These are great and very low calorie! The first time I made them I used quick oats and soaked them for an hour, which made them completely unnoticeable. My husband was disappointed that they weren’t more “oaty". So the next time I used old-fashioned oats and only soaked them as long as it took me to get the rest of the ingredients together (about half an hour) which gave them a chewier texture and an “oaty” flavour he really likes. As suggested by other reviewers I added spices- 2 teaspoons cinnamon, 3/4 teaspoon salt, and 1 teaspoon of vanilla. The supermarket didnt have buttermilk so I used regular with a Tablespoon of vinegar. They turned out wonderfully. - 29 Sep 2008
Used different ingredients. These muffins were really good. I did add cinnamon and raisens to mine and before baking I did sprinkle a little bit of cinnamon and sugar on top. My co-workers liked them as well as my kids. - 29 Sep 2008
Once I got used to the lack of sweetness in these muffins, I really started to enjoy them. Very easy and fast recipe, and the muffins come out fluffy and moist. As per the suggested tweaks, I added some spice to give them a bit more of a zing - cinnamon and nutmeg in my case. Great for breakfast on the go. - 02 Jan 2010
