Nice flavor with a moist, yet chewy texture. I liked that they are not too sweet. I may add some chopped nuts next time, or some dried cranberries.

This is a pretty good muffin, and as Procrasti-baker says, it is NOT very sweet. I missed that in the recipe and therefore did not have the sweet muffin I wanted. Next time I will increase honey. Thanks!
