Overall these were pretty good but they had a bit of a funny aftertaste that I didn't enjoy. Also the oats were still very evident which I didn't mind but my kids didn't enjoy at all. These muffins really don't rise so I recommend filling them to the top. I didn't read all the reviews first, filled my muffin tins 2/3 of the way full as recommended with most other recipes and threw away some extra batter. I was pretty disappointed when my muffins were little and flat.
Wow these are really good. I followed the recipe other then I used one egg instead of the two egg whites and I used white chocolate chips as I didn't think I would like chocolate chips in these (personal preference). I also used 5 tablespoons of cocoa and that was good for us. I cooked mine for 20 minutes. There are solid muffins but mine did raise some. They are so yummy!
Good muffins, especially for being lower fat, although still a bit caloric. Made a good breakfast. I tried to add some peanuts to half the batter thinking it would be a good addition, but didn't really turn out very well. As other reviewers mentioned, didn't rise very much. But they were tasty. Thanks for posting!
