I made these muffins to give in my Christmas gift packages. Everyone loved them, and including myself. I followed the recipe exactly, and they were easy to make.

Yum! I couldn't bring myself to use that much oil, so I used half applesauce/half oil. The texture, flavor and moisture were not affected. Because I am a high-altitude cook, I added a half-cup flour. The muffins were done in 15 min. Thanks for the great recipe! :)

My family loves this recipe! I looked up a crumb topping to put on top of the muffins. The crumb topping recipe is below.

1/8 teaspoon ginger
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/3 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons flour
1 tablespoon butter (sliced)

Mix ingredients together. It will look like cornmeal. Before baking, sprinkle topping over batter.

(Are you looking for wintertime comfort food recipes? Make hot chocolate with Marshmallow Fluff topping. Sprinkle cinnamon over fluff. Serve with muffins.)

I used this as my base recipe and then made a few healthier changes, such as wheat flour and applesauce in place of oil. I also cut back to 1 1/2 c sugar, added only about 1 c of miniature chocolate chips, and used pumpkin pie spice in place of cinnamon. These muffins were so good and moist. They had a wonderful flavor that everyone in my house enjoyed. I also liked that it provided two days of breakfasts for my family of 6. I got 24 regular muffins and a full tray of 36 mini-muffins.

This muffin was exactly what I wanted! Moist, flavorful with great consistency. I made it with 2 C whole wheat flour & 1 cup AP flour and it worked great. I'll likely play around with more spice next time but this was scrumptious:).

These are wonderful! Before I was dating Ryan, I had made these for him, and he loved them! I didn't know it at the time, but he later told me that after his first bite, he had thought, "I'm going to marry her for these." Ryan & I are engaged to be married Dec. 5th 2009.

Really good! I used half white sugar and half brown. This was a good amount of chocolate chips - enough for a couple in every bite! Thanks Marg! Hubby called them "fallish" and very good.

Okay-- funny story. I made these muffins yesterday. I was in the kitchen doing 100 different things at once, one of which was mixing up the ingedients for this recipe as my six year old daughter read them off the computer. Well.... she skipped an ingredient. An important one!SUGAR! And I didn't even notice that I hadn't added any! Just popped them in to bake. They didn't rise as much as I thought they should, and I wondered why. Then I broke a small piece off of one and popped it in my mouth. It wasn't sweet at all. And then it dawned on me! I never put any sugar in! I took a larger bite, this time including a chocolate chip or 2, and I thought it tasted pretty good! I gave some to the kids (who had no clue) and they said that they were delicious! HAHAHA! Just had to share-- I imagine they're absolutely amazing if you actually follow the directions, considering how good they were-- even without the 2 cups of sugar that should have been in there.
