From Quaker Oats booklet printed in 1989. I love the flavor of these muffins and they are pretty healthy to boot! Hope you love them as much too! These freeze very well too - just make sure to wrap them individually. I reheat the frozen muffin in the microwave for about 30 seconds.

This was a good hearty muffin, but both DH and I thought it needed something for that extra yum. I did double the cinnamon and added some nutmeg, maybe a little extra sugar or some lemon zest would bring out the flavor more. Made for ZWT 8 by one of The Wild Bunch.

As is usually the case with your recipes, this one does not disappoint! These came together very quickly as a "happy first day of school" treat for the kiddos, and they were enjoyed by all. I used half whole wheat and half white wheat flour, and used 3 T applesauce and 1 T oil. The flavor is subtle, so if you like a big pop of cinnamon I might increase that a bit. The texture is the real win here; usually my attempts at "healthing up" muffin recipes yield denser muffins but these were light and delicious. Thanks for posting :). Made for ZWT 8: The Wild Bunch.

Very moist and tasty! I love the texture the oats give them. I used Splenda brown sugar blend (2 tbls + 2 tsps = 1/3 cup brown sugar) Used a gala apple which added some extra sweetness to the muffins. I think I will try this with all apple juice instead of the milk next time, for even more apple flavor.
