Zero Stars. These muffins were horrible. I threw all of them away.
I thought the texture was good, since I like a heavier, less sweet (non-ooey-gooey) muffin. Since I am diabetic, I used sugar-free syrup and added some maple flavoring. I think it needed more of the flavoring to compensate for the lack of REAL maple. I will try them again and use real maple syrup, when I know I have been good with my blood sugar numbers. I used pecans, which added some nutty flavor. Thanks for posting this.
Just followed this receipe and baked these awful tasty, waste of product and time muffins.
