I really wished I liked these, but I just didn't. I don't know what I did wrong, but my muffins were very dry and had a somewhat bitter aftertaste remniscent of baking soda or powder (?). I made these in the hopes of tempting my little one into eating a healthy breakfast...she couldn't get past taking a bite (spit it out). I'll eat them, cause I can't stand to see them wasted, but I don't think I'll make them again. UPDATE: I've since decided my AP flour was contaminated w/ self-rising and causing bitterness everywhere...this recipe may be better than I made it!

Scrumptious muffins! Followed the recipe exactly, except for substituting whole wheat pastry flour for the all-purpose. I chose to go with walnuts, plain yogurt and I used a granny smith as the apple. Easy to throw together (as a muffin should be!) and wonderful flavor and texture. I don't know if the maple flavor is really distinct per se, but it adds a wonderful sweetness and does contribute very much to the overall flavor of these tasty muffins. Really delightful flavor- mildly appley and maple and very tender on the inside and sort of crunchy on top. These puffed up beautifully for me and they sure are lookers! I have to agree with Kree, I can hardly believe that these are good for me! Thanks for another great recipe, Geema!

Very good muffins. We used one container of greek yogurt which is probablly about the amount called for and raisins instead of nuts. Thanks for sharing!

Yummy. Made a few changes though. Chopped the apple, added additional 1T. oil and a dollop of unsweetened applesauce, 1/3c. brown sugar, only 1/3c. maple syrup, and dash of cinnamon. Baked for only 12 minutes.

These were pretty good. Mine came out a little dry however and I'm not sure why. I will try to make them again because I really like the flavor, I just want to figure out why they weren't as moist as I expected. Thanks for posting this healthy treat!

These are good and healthy too. Definitely not a real sweet muffin. My husband loved them! I used quite a bit more apple than it called for. I also used real maple syrup and vanilla flavored yogurt. Great!

These are delicious light fluffy tasty muffins!!! Would add more apple next time - but they are great as is!!!! Used a little less maple syrup - but that's because I used vanilla yogurt instead of plain! Thanks Geema! :)

These were OK. I made them on a snow day when I wanted to bake something w/ ingredients that I had. I did not use nuts - maybe they would be better w/ them. My boyfriend and son did not like them very much.

These were great-very moist, light and yummy but best of all, they're good for you! I added a touch of maple flavoring because I wanted the flavor to be more pronounced. They were delicious! Thanks for sharing the recipe. I will be making these again and again.
