They were okay, but nothing I'd make again. After reading all reviews I tried adding: 1/2 t. vanilla, 1/2 t. cinnamon, walnuts and raisins. Also, I cut the baking powder back to 3 t., but could still taste it. They were not dense nor overly sweet [a good thing]. There are so many flavorful healthy recipes out there that I'd rather make again.
These were okay. I agree with other reviews: mild taste, cut back on the butter, had a slightly corn bread flavor from the wheat germ. I will make these again using suggestions already posted; nuts, berries, something. Not a bad muffin, nothing terribly amazing either.
Wow! These were pretty darn good. I was a little skeptical about it because although I love wheat germ for its health benefits, I don't care all that much for the taste. BUT it's a very mild flavor and it's moist and great for spreads/jams. These would be great with any additions too. I added coconut flakes on the tops and maybe next time I'll throw in some spices ;-) Thanks for a fab recipe MJ! Update: Baked this in an 8x8, halved the recipe and it came out wonderful.
