These were a good low fat muffins. Twenty minutes was way too long for these muffins in my oven. I checked at 18 and they were a little over done. Next time I will add the fruit to the wet ingredients to reduce the amount of mixing required. I will definitely be making these again.

Very moist incredibly low fat muffin. I used whole wheat pastry flour and skim milk plus lemon juice fo rthe buttermilk. Otherwise left them as is. I am going to freeze them for a long car trip. These would make very large muffins if you are making 12 because I got 12 regular and 9 mini. Lovely warm with a tad of spray butter. Here's hoping they freeze well!
