I have tweaked this recipe to make it so healthy. Healthy is not tough and chewy here! These muffins have great muffin texture and a great taste. Stoneware muffin pans are by far the best if you have them.

Good recipe. I used wheat germ in place of the flax seeds and applesauce in place of oil. I also added some vanilla and mini chocolate chips. Yummy. Kids loved them as did I.

I was surprised by how moist these were! I used KristinS' suggestions - and also sprinkled in some cinnamon for added flavor. I also didn't have oat bran - so I ground 3/4 cup of quick oats in the blender. Thanks!

These were fantastic! Very moist. Instead of using a 1/2 cup of white sugar, I used 1/4 cup white sugar, and 1/4 cup brown sugar. Also added a little vanilla. My recipe only yielded 9 smallish normal size muffins, not 12.
