With a few tweaks, these could be pretty tasty. I made these the other night, with only a couple changes: one whole egg, 2 T canola oil instead of the oil and applesauce called for (I wanted to use butter, but didn't have any that wasn't frozen, lol), and added a t of vanilla, and about 1/2 t almond extract. I also sprinkled the tops with sugar before putting them in the oven. The texture of these muffins is pretty good, but they had very little flavor. I was very glad I put the sugar on top, because that definitely helped. Next time, I will use butter, and probably add a bit more sugar and extracts. Oh, and I also soured the milk with lemon juice instead of vinegar, and I ended up with 11 muffins, rather than 13. Will probably make these again in the future.
Not sure what happened, but these muffins had absolutely no taste. They don't taste BAD...there's just no taste. I followed the recipe exactly so I'm not sure what happened. Thanks for sharing anyway!
Followed your recipe right on down & used frozen berries (Still haven't found great looking fresh blueberries anywhere around these past 2 weeks!) & the muffins were very nice ~ Easy to make & great on the taste buds (& the waist, for that matter!) Thanks for sharing this great keeper! [Made & reviewed as a THANK YOU for playing with us in Please Review My Recipe during the recent tour]
These weren't bad but weren't really memorable either. Like the previous poster, I found they had very little flavor and I also ended up with 11 muffins.
These were great, and they froze well. Next time I make them I'll try substituting stevia extract for the sugar.
These are good for being healthy. I was looking for a recipe that didn't call for butter and this fit the bill and actually tasted good as well. Will make again.
These were pretty good. They have that "healthy food" taste, so I couldn't really compare them to regular muffins, but they were still good. I also used Splenda and used lemon juice instead of vinegar to make the buttermilk, I also grated a little lemon zest in as it goes very well with blueberries and brings out their flavour. Definitely a good recipe for those watching the waist or wanting to get more fibre in their diet, but I don't know that I'd consider them a viable substitute for normal muffins. They're closer to granola bars! :D
My DH and I loved these muffins! Very tasty and low fat. I used splenda for the sugar and egg substitute. Thanks!
Wow. You'd never know these muffins are low fat. Although mine may be a little higher on the caloric content as I didn't use oatmeal. I have two boxes of blueberry frosted mini wheats that I bought for the kids (they won't eat it) that needed to be used. I substituted a 1/4 cup of ground up mini wheats for the oatmeal and it turned out great! Thanks for the tasty recipe and way to use up the uneaten cereal.
I'm a total health freak so I'm always trying out these low fat recepies! These weren't the easiest to bake, lol I'm pretty new at this so I was wondering why the heck I needed sour milk! silly me! but I mad a quick call to my mom so I was set ^^ also had a hard time fiding apple sauce... I ended up switching the sugar to splenda, adding a tsp of vanilla and some raseberries for the heck of it! In the end, the muffins were great, awsome even :D! My bf loved them! I'm deffenetly making these again :)
