Used different ingredients. This recipe made very delicious and hearty wheat muffins. They were a great after school snack for the kids. I froze the rest and they were eaten in school lunches and for quick on-the-go breakfasts. You can play around with this recipe to suit your whims. Once I added finely chopped apples and cinnamon. Another time I added ground flax seed. I think I like it with the addition of cinnamon. I like the fact that it has no oil but it still has a nice texture and they turn out moist and just yummy. So play around with it if you want, or just enjoy it as is. - 29 Sep 2008


Used different ingredients. These muffins were ok - a little too fluffy for my taste. I added raisins and left out the nutmeg, and they tasted fine. - 29 Sep 2008


Used different ingredients. Good muffins. I used pecans instead of walnuts and cinnamon instead of nutmeg. They are tasty warm with a little butter . - 29 Sep 2008
