This is a great recipe. The two things I changed were:

%u2022I took out the pecans
%u2022Instead of muffins, I used a brownie pan and made oatmeal chocolate muffin bars! They were really good, but crumbly!!

These were really good! I made the following changes:
*used 1/4c applesauce and 1/4c Smart Balance oil
*used 3/4c white flour and 1/2c whole wheat flour
*used half skim milk, half 2% milk
*used 1/2c brown sugar in recipe, did not sprinkle additional 1/4c on top of muffins
*skipped nuts
*used 1/2c mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
The texture turned out GREAT and the muffins are definitely a good size. The only reason I'm not giving them 5 stars is that the muffin itself has very little taste. I think the next time I make these I may add a bit of vanilla or cinnamon. Thanks for sharing!

Yum! I made giant muffins. I used 1% milk, apple sauce instead of oil, no nuts. Also.. I accidentally used normal sugar rather than brown sugar. But they turned out great! Lower in fat.. which is great considering they're double the normal size.
