This is the first time I've rated a recipe on this site and I'm disappointed to say that I have to give this one the very big thumbs down. The muffins didn't rise, the taste was almost non-existant and they just wouldn't cook. I ended up coating them with honey, sprinkling them with a load of sugar and rebaking them just to get some sort of taste.


A little bland, but otherwise not bad. I subbed sour cream for the yogurt as I didn't have any, and used egg whites for the whole egg. I got 16 normal sized muffins out of this recipe and I'd probably make them again if I upped the spices heavily. A really good 'no sugar added' muffin, to be fair.


To be fair, I deviated from this quite a bit, but overall it was great inspiration and a good guide for me. I wanted a sweet option to use up some steel-cut oats; omitted rice flour, flax seeds, arrowroot powder, butter, and cranberry juice. Used unsweetened applesauce, about 1 c unbleached wheat flour and 1/2 c bread flour, added 1/2 tsp. of ground cloves, and about 1 c. of shredded carrots and 1/4 c. orange-mango 100% juice blend. Before baking, I topped them with a third/third/third mix of brown sugar/crushed almonds/cinnamon (total of about 1/8 c. topping). These were VERY moist, and delicious when I drizzled the tops with some cream cheese icing. Very easy recipe to modify, probably nice as written, too!
