    These muffins were wonderful! They took NO extra time to bake because while the oatmeal was soaking I went ahead and measured all the other ingredients out, turned on the oven, and put liners in the muffin cups. They were absolutely wonderful and yummy. I will use this recipe many more times. Everyone LOVES them! Very moist and delicious! I freeze them and keep them around! Usually I double the recipe, cut the oil in half, and use half whole wheat flour and half white flour, which really adds some flavor to the muffins.  -  17 Nov 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    These were very yummy! I omitted the nuts and added more chocolate chips. Warming them up to melt the chocolate chips makes it even better the next day. Mini-chocolate chips might have worked better.It also feels good to have the good-for-you oatmeal in there. Next time, I would use apple sauce instead of oil to make it healthier. **** also added 1tsp vanilla!!! **** i think that helped a lot.  -  26 Sep 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Hubby's staff has gotten quite spoiled by all the baked treats I send him to the office with on a regular basis. Tomorrow's treat was to be these muffins. I omitted the nuts (known nut allergy in the group) and substituted some butterscotch chips along with mini chocolate chips. I found these difficult to get out of the tins, as the topping wanted to adhere itself and then broke apart in places as I tried to release them. As for taste, if it wasn't for the chocolate and butterscotch chips there wouldn't be much flavor at all (maybe I should have added vanilla) and what flavor there was seemed to have an almost starchy/acrid taste (maybe too much baking powder and salt?). There was no way I would send these with hubs--if I'm not proud of what I make or want to eat it myself it's not good enough for anyone else. I hate to waste food or my time, but knowing hubs and I wouldn't eat them either, they went into the garbage.  -  27 Feb 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
