    Too dry. A recipe I will not use again.  -  16 Nov 2016


    Very, very good. I made the following changes based upon other reviews and my own preferences: I subbed 1/2C whole wheat for the same amount of white flour. I added a dash of cinnamin and 4 T applesauce as well as about a 1/2C of craisens. To sweeten them up a bit, I made a drizzle for them from fresh squeezed OJ & powdered sugar. They were delicious! I will definitely make them again.  -  14 Apr 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I made these muffins four different ways last weekend and they were all absolutely delicious! I made strawberry, blackberry, blueberry and raspberry, all with the same flavored yogurt as the fruit I used. They are so easy to make and look like I spent a lot more time on them than I did. They are so pretty on a tray and very moist. We loved them, so I will be making them quit often now. Thanks!!  -  16 Mar 2001  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
