I have this exact recipe in a church cookbook with one exception - it has a topping that is added prior to baking. Topping: 1/4 cup quick oats, 1 Tbsp. packed brown sugar, 1/8 tsp cinnamon, 1 Tbsp butter melted. Put muffin batter in muffin pan, combine all topping ingredients and sprinkle over batter. Will obviously add more fat and calories, but gives a nice crunch. The recipe is perfectly fine without the topping. I plan to add more spices next time as I think it is a little bland.

Used OF rolled oats instead of quick oats which gave the muffins a nice chewy texture. I also used a whole egg rather than just egg whites and the raspberry applesauce that I had on hand. Al usual I went a little lighter on the sugar with no ill-effects. Nice easy recipe. The kids really liked it.

Very heavy dense muffins. I made as written except used half whole wheat flour for the flour. I also added chocolate chips but they could not help the heaviness. I had to cook them for 25 minutes to get them done. Maybe adding some baking soda and salt would help them rise more. These turned out more like a thick dense apple bread with lots of texture from the oatmeal. My kids didn't like them and they usually love muffins.
