I have NEVER been able to make muffins, seriously, they NEVER turn out. I tried this recipe, but used 1/4 cup margarine (instead of oil) and 3/4 cups homemade applesauce (instead of diced apples) and they turned out PERFECT!!!!
These muffins were pretty good, Personally, I don't like muffins that come out of a plastic bag. They are certainly always moist, but it is a different moistness from that which is characteristic of a muffin recipe that yieldsa moist and tender mufin straight from the oven. Given this prerence, I chose to eat these from the oven. My husband and I really liked the flavor, but I felt that the batter was a little dry. I used white whole wheat flour for the 1/2 cup we were told to play with.
Delicious muffins! I used a 1/2 cup of oat bran and I left out the walnuts. I really like the combination of apples, brown sugar, and cranberries (although I would chop the cranberries next time). I didn't notice the instructions "do not freeze" and did freeze half the recipe...I actually couldn't tell a difference between the frozen/thawed and the fresh muffins. Thanks for sharing this!
