My highest is three stars for this, I doubled the sugar and they were just barely sweet enough. We can handle less sweet stuff as well, so these were probably pretty savory at the amount of sugar listed. Would add cinnamon as well, for a little spice.

These made exactly 12 muffins and the baking time was right on. The only comments I got were that they were good but a little crumbly. I used white flour and added in 1/2 cup wheat bran as I was out of whole wheat flour. That substitution may have contributed to the crumbliness. My only real suggestion would be to add cinnamon or a combination of spices for added flavor. Made for Switzerland Dessert Challenge during ZWT 7.

The selling feature on making these muffins was reviewers noting they weren't very sweet. Which is a plus in my book. I listened to the one reviewer who added extra oatmeal and whole wheat flour to eliminate the plain flour, and did that. I also added a heaping teaspoon of allspice, and some unsalted but roasted sunflower seeds for crunch. I removed just a little brown sugar and substituted real maple syrup for it. 15 minutes of baking appears to be best; mine were unfortunately baking for 20. Flavor was very good, internal texture decent. And yes, thankfully NOT too sweet!
