Not fond of raisins so I used just plain bran flakes. They turned out great. The family loved them but my husband requested that I crush the flakes first. He didn't really like finding whole ...

i also added walnuts and used a combination of half oil and half water (instead of just the oil). it still came out well.

Nice and moist, but not very sweet. I think they were a bit too salty, too.

This recipe is super easy, and really good. I was surprise at how moist my muffins turned out. I substituted apple sauce for the oil to make them even healthier. Still just as great!

Best at 375 for 14 Min. Great light 8 muffins. Used 1/2 AP Four and 1/2 wheat. Will probably add the banana others suggested next time.

I was very unpleased, it says to bake for 30min. After 20 min. my muffins were burnt!!

Not bad but nothing special.
