Awesome! a great way to get in healthy omegas and fiber. I made a batch and froze them. They reheat great in the microwave!

The person who said this recipe was dry and tasteless must have left out some of the ingredients. I followed the recipe exactly, and it turned out moist and tasty. What a nice surprise when it is a healthier alternative as well. I can see how you could put other ingredients in with equally good results. Next time I will try cloves instead of ginger just to compare tastes, pecans instead of walnuts. Hmmm, maybe mashed sweet potatoes instead of bananas. I have placed this recipe in my "Excellent" file.

Just tried these muffins and while they are indeed delicious - I found that the topping doesn't "stick" and so eating them is a very messy business, with nuts falling everywhere!! I would make these again and just mix the nuts straight into the batter instead of precariously piling them on top.

Really good! Love the texture and the power packed nutrition! I used red mill whole wheat pastry flour, and I ground the oatmeal so my 10 year old won't taste it. I also pureed the carrot w/ sweet potato, and used only 1/4 spoonful of ginger. I loved the fact that it used so little butter and sugar and the taste just so wonderful! Thank you for this great recipe!

Thanks for a great recipe. I added flax seeds and left out the raisins. I only had a mixture of nuts in my cupboard so I used those (walnuts, pecans, cashews). Straight out of the oven with a scoop of vanilla ice cream these were amazing. Still yummy as little snacks throughout the day (minus the ice cream).

Not good. I was looking for a good, moist healthy option to a traditional muffin. This wasn't it. It wasn't very moist at all, despite many of the reviews I read. Too dense and not very flavorful, despite the various spices. I'd rather just make a traditional bran muffin rather than make this one again.

I did make modifications based on available ingredients and time. This recipe is excellent. I made this for my kids and my daughter has been asking for me to make it again. She loves to have it as part of her breakfast. I think it is a very healthy breakfast. It is a five star recipe.

I skipped the topping because my toddler doesn't like nuts. Subbed chocolate chips for the raisins and skipped the ginger. Wonderful, healthy recipe.

I'm not going to rate this because I've made a lot of changes. I used the basic ratios as a starting off place for the flours/grains I used. I've now found (IMO) the perfect mix of steel cut oats, bulgur, and wheat flour to get a high fiber (5 g/muffin), lower calorie muffin. I am using your combo of spices and have added frozen blueberries.
