    Saturn's Note:

    The original recipe is in the Mostly Muffins Cookbook from Company's Coming. I made them today and they were wonderful. I made a few alterations to their version and it was so good that that is the one that I am posting. ;)

      This is a great recipe. I doubled the recipe and I also doubled the cinnamon. I substituted 1/2 c. unsweeted applesauce for part of the oil, added 1 cup of raisins, and 1/2 tsp. allspice. I forgot to sprinkle them with sugar at the end, but it didn't matter because, in our opinion, they don't need it! I like the addition of whole wheat flour. I got 42 standard-size muffins, and I plan to freeze a bunch so my husband can just take them out before he goes to work. Thanks for posting this!

      Great muffins! DH didn't even realize he was having something "healthy!" The only addition I made was to add 3 tablespoons of ground flax seed meal. Delicious! Thank you Saturn! made for Fall PAC 2009

      Yummy muffins. I made the recipe as written, no changes. I sprinkled sugar on and then realized I had cute fall sprinkles. Added those to the top of the muffins. Easy to make, delicious to eat. I made 6 large muffins and 12 small muffins, baking the small muffins for 13 minutes. The 20 minute bake time was plenty for the large muffins. Made and reviewed for PAC, Fall 2008
