This is a great recipe. I love it because it is so versatile. The first time I made it I used pumpkin and chocolate chips. Delicious. The next time I pureed some white navy beans and added them in along with raisins. Amazing....nobody in my house was any the wiser that the secret ingredient in their muffins was beans! A great way to slip in some extra fibre. I look forward to experimenting with this recipe and finding new ways to make it.
Edit to add made this again yesterday using some oranges that I pureed in my blender along with orange zest and white chocolate chips. Super good. Made it as a loaf....45mins at 375 was good.
THis is the best muffin recipe. I look in my pantry and fridge and use what I have to create that day's muffin. I too have found that 20-25 minutes works better with my oven depending on what I use in the wet mix. I tried the peanut butter and it makes a heavey muffin/ giant soft cookie. Dad really liked those. The favourite for the kids is anything with chocolate chips. I find that a half cup is enough. A full cup of chips can be too much (especially when you have four small faces to clean). I look forward to trying other variations that I can come up with!
These muffins are great! I used applesauce in my wet mix and used chocolate chips. I was really surprised that the texture was so good--usually with so little oil I find that the texture gets a little gummy, but these were just right. I baked mine for longer than the 10-15 minutes, but it could just be my oven. I will be definitely be using this recipe in the future, thanks!
