I really enjoyed these. I followed the recipe exactly as written other then I used canola oil instead of vegetable as that is all I had. I tasted them hot out of the oven and after they cooled. I actually enjoyed them even more once they cooled. They are not a sweet muffin but I thought they were perfect! I only had to cook mine for 20 minutes.

Really delicious recipe. Thank you so much for posting.
I made them as directed, but I added a handful of sultanas and used skinny milk.

I particularly like how adaptable they would be. You could flavour with orange or lemon zest, any kind of dried fruit, grated peat or apple, any spice really.. the options are endless.

I found the sweetness perfect, and zapped them in the microwave before eating.

Such a nice on the go breakfast recipe. I imagine they will freeze well, but I haven't tried yet.

ETA 16/2 - Have modified these to make them vegan by using soy milk and a ripe banana for the egg. They came up surprisingly well, IMO. Just a note though, you really need to serve these warm, otherwise they seem a bit dry. I'm also tempted to ripple through a bit of jam or even golden syrup or honey.

These were just OK. Not anything wrong with them, just not amazing.

These were good but probably will not make them again. I thought they were lacking something. I did like that these muffins did not have a lot of sugar. Thank you!

These are great. I really like that they aren't too sweet. I added golden raisins and made 24 minis. I will make them again.

Made these this morning and they are really good. Not overly sweet, so really good with butter or cream cheese and strawberry-rhubarb jam. Lost a star only for sticking to the paper muffin cups and being a bit crumbly... Taste makes up for that, and I love the slightly chewy texture the oats give this. Will make again, without the paper liners. UPDATE: These little gems are getting their star back because 24 hrs later, I am munching on them and they are nice and firm and coming right out of the papers... and they have none of the "stale, day old muffin" taste that some homemade bready things get after sitting.

A nice almost savoury muffin. Made exactly as is, served hot with butter and strawberry jam.

Very good low sugar recipe. I also added cinamon and few raisins on top. Will make again.

We really enjoyed these muffins, they are not too sweet and are flavourful. I did add cinnamon and raisins this time but will play around with the "add in" ingredients the next time I make them. Thanks for posting.

Enjoyed this recipe very much - a light muffin that's not too sweet. I added crushed banana chips, replaced the oil with applesauce, and added a bit of cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg. Replaced the white sugar with brown sugar.
