This recipe was great. My husband thought they were just great, and takes them for breakfast. I added 1T. of cinnamon to the batter, 1/2 cup of coconut and 1/2 cup of wheat bran.
I made this recipe for my husband who was recently advised to go on a high-fiber diet. I substituted skim milk (& soured it with 2 tbsp vinegar), and added about 1/3 c wheat germ to the recipe. After filling the muffin papers, I sprinkled on some cinnamon sugar. Being a fairly picky eater, I wasn't sure he'd like them -- but he did!! I think the next time I make them I might add some cinnamon or nutmeg to the batter. And I might swap some applesauce for some of the oil. These are yummy!
I made these just as described with 2 changes....I used 1/4c applesauce and 1/4c Smart Balance oil, plus I forgot to add the vinegar to sour the organic skim (tastes MUCH better than regular skim) milk that I used. I added the 1/2c of raisins, but not the nuts. I LOVE the fiber & protein that the whole grains contribute and the texture from the steel cut oats is awesome. The only reason I'm not giving 5 stars is that the taste was a wee bit on the bland side (which could be my bad for forgetting the vinegar). Next time I'll add some spices (cloves & ginger?). Thanks for sharing!
