I made this for gift giving and think I wasted a lot of quality ingredients. They do not rise, are chewy and tough with so much oats. Fine if you are a into health foods, but not for me. Will not make these again for sure. I posted my pictures to see how short the loaves were.
These turned out really dense - more like baked oatmeal (if you've had that before) than like a muffin. Texture was weird for the kids, so they did not eat these. I liked them pretty well when I warmed them and served with fat free half and half one morning for breakfast. I halved the recipe and it made 12 regular muffins, although they do not rise, so they were somewhat short. Flavor was pretty good, just the texture was unexpected.
These are absolutely delicious. So healthy and robust, and the flavor is just perfect. We fill a large 6-muffin tin to the brim with this recipe, instead of yielding 18. And when fresh cranberries aren't available, we've used frozen blackberries or mixed fruit (blueberries esp) -- either thawed or still frozen -- and that works out great.
