I can only repeat the others. These are wonderful. I like to know I'm giving my kids something good in their lunchbag. These will be going in often. Thank you.

Bev, these muffins were terrific! I didn't change a thing with the recipe. The moistness, taste and texture was better than most muffins I've ever eaten. Thanx for the recipe!

These were very good little muffins. I made a few subs based on what I had on hand : no walnuts, 2 mashed bananas and 1/3 cup water with 1 tsp baking powder for the eggs, and 2/3 cup raisins and cranberries. Also added a bit of zucchini as my apple was very small and omitted the coconut as we don't care for it. I thought that they would not come out right without the eggs, but I found that we didn't really missed them. Thank you for such a healthy muffin! Made for I Recommend Tag.
