I love this recipe. I substituted 1/2 of applesauce for the oil. I used spelt flour instead of regular flour to make it gluten free. I did embellish on the spices adding cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and cloves. I also added dark chocolate chips. They are yummy and moist.
What a nice treat! I had to find a healthy and tasty muffin recipe for my husband and this certainly filled the bill. I did make a few changes. Since he eats the muffins for a full breakfast, I made them in my jumbo muffin pan and it yielded 9 he-man sized muffins. I used 1/4 C oil/1/4 C of applesauce to replace the 1/2 C oil. I used 1/2 C brown sugar/1/2 C molasses to replace the C of brown sugar. I used 3/4 C of oats/1/4 C of 100% bran in place of all oats and I added a bit extra pumpkin pie spice and an additional tsp of cloves hoping to add flavor as many reviewers stated they were bland. I have just about finished my muffin and it is very filling...I won't have to eat lunch today! Yummy! Oh...if you choose to use the jumbo muffin pan, I reduced the cooking temperature to 350 degrees and baked for 27 minutes. The result was perfect!
This recipe was easy and the muffins super moist. Very healthy ingredients and my family absolutely ate them up...literally. Thanks!
This is a great recipe that is easlily adapted. I made these muffins using half WW pastry flour, 1/4 c applesauce and 1/4 c oil. For the spices I used 2 tsp cinnamon, 1tsp nutmeg, 1/2 tsp ginger and 1/4 tsp cloves. I also chopped 1/2 c. pecans up really fine and tossed them in there for some added protein. DD doesn't like nuts, but I like the extra protein they add so I hide them! Sshh, don't tell her! I just had one warm from the oven and it was yummy. I think that next time I will add a diced, tart apple. My kiddos will love these for breakfast in the morning. Thanks!
Delicous. Added1/4 cup of water and used whole wheat flour. Used 1 cup of raisins and 1 cup of walnuts.
Made a lot of muffins that we enjoyed for snack and breakfast. Thank you!
Great recipe, not too sweet. I didn't have pumpkin pie spice, so I subbed the recommended subs. Also used one 15oz can of pumpkin. Thanks for the keeper!
These were good but nothing out of the ordinary. I subbed half applesauce for oil , and used whole wheat pastry flour. Even using old fashioned oats they weren't very oaty. I used 4 tsp of cinnamon 1 tsp ginger and 1 tsp nutmeg with a little clove and the still weren't too spiced. I think a little orange zest would give them some zing.
I was looking for something quick for breakfast for me and my 18-month old, and we both LOVE these muffins!!! I substituted applesauce for the oil, blue agave for half of the sugar, and used 1/4 cup of water. I didn't have pumpkin pie spice, so I used a combination of cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, and allspice. Delicious and satisfying!
