these were good, fluffy and not very sweet! i subbed some wheat germ for some of the flour and used walnuts instead of apples. the apricots were delicious and the muffins had a nice brany feel to them. i also used lemon rind instead of orange and added some vanilla. thanks for a a fun recipe to try.

A great muffin recipe. I love the taste of apples, apricots and carrots together with the cereals. To add the cereals to the dry ingredients is great, because it adds a crunchy texture to the muffins. I like the fruity flavours of these muffins in combination with all bran cereals and whole wheat flour. The texture was great: very fluffy and not too moist. One could omit the toppings, but they give the muffins a finishing touch. The amount of cinnamon is right on here. I first thought it might be too much, but the flavour was well balanced. The wonderful taste and texture of these muffins make this recipe worthwhile 5 stars or more. Thanks for sharing this great recipe.

These muffins were moist, tasty and healthy. I got 18 medium size muffins. I was a little concerned on the amount of cinnamon but it turned out fine.

These muffins were easy to make and full of good stuff, but next time I will add more sugar as I found these really needed it-I tend to like things on the sweet side, lol! These freeze very well and are a perfect addition to a lunch box. Good Luck!

I prepared this dish for RSC and found it to be my ideal muffin -- tender, moist, full of flavor and bits of good things that made this a treat. Loved the way the carrots and apples not only added a fruity sweetness but kept this moist despite being low fat. I made two substitutions, one of which is typical for me. First, I used Splenda brown sugar in lieu of the regular stuff. Also, I was out of lemons so I juiced the orange that was zested for this dish instead. Could not tell the difference in the taste. My only comment of any consequence was there was a lot of batter so my yield was 12 regular sized muffins plus 9 mini muffins. Just more to enjoy. Thanks!

I wanted to try these muffins because they use whole wheat flour. They were very good and I would give them 5* if it were not a contest recipe. I felt I had to give just 4 stars because there is an ingredient listed that is not in the instructions, the 1/4 cup of margarine. I added it in with the wet ingredients. I used the all bran cereal, which worked very well, although I was surprized to use it as a dry ingredient, I usually soak it in some liquid and use it as a wet ingredient. In any case it worked just fine dry. Instead of the white chocolate chips for topping I used the chopped apple, turned out great. The touch of orange zest added a nice touch, but was surprized to not use the orange juice instead of the lemon juice. There certainly was lots of fruit/veggie in them, the apples, carrots and apricots went well together. All in all we enjoyed the muffins and I would probably make them again. Good luck in the contest.
