  • “Easy, delicious, what more could you ask for. Only change I made was increasing the cinnamon to 1 teaspoon.”

  • “Easy to do….delicious.I am going to add 1/3 of the flour in triticale flour for it’s nutty, full flavor in my next batch.Warren”

  • “These are so yummy – extra so with my changes and additions!I used coconut oil instead of vegetable oil. I increased the cinnamon to 1 1/2 tsp.Plus, I added a topping to the 12 muffins right after they came out of the oven that consisted of 2 Tbsp of Brown Sugar, 1/4 cup Melted Buttter, 1/2 tsp of Cinnamon spooned over the top of each muffin, then finished off with a sprinkle of finely chopped pecans.OMGosh – delicious!”

  • “A tasty muffin but a bit dry, maybe more oil would help. I definitely think using 1 tsp. cinnamon was the right choice. I prepared as directed but only baked them for 18 minutes, which was plenty.An adoptee, Dorel, you should be happy to call your own! “
