Top Review by kearley420

The only thing I found good about this recipe was that it smelled good while they were baking. I baked the first batch of 12 for 22.5 minutes, usually if I split the recommended time for my oven, things bake up great. The edges were starting to burn (I didn't use liners, just buttered so I think that is why) and I assumed they were cooked. I even stuck a cake tester into one and it came out clean. When I went to cut into one, only to find DOUGH, I was sorely disappointed. The second batch I baked for 31 minutes - 31. 6-11 minutes OVER the recommended time. STILL I had dough. Now, I have the smell and nothing to show for it for breakfast. A part of me wants to try them again because I love the ingredients, but I used up all of my agave on this recipe and I really don't think I could stand to throw away 18 more muffins!
