Yummy. I didn't use lemon, and used walnuts instead of pecans. Really good. Thanks.
Excellent! The topping was really spectacular as it gave a "being naughty" flavor to the wholesome goodness of the oat and wheat flours. Everyone enjoyed and I will keep this one in my recipe stash. Thanks for posting!!! ~Sue
I chose this recipe because it was adapted for the South Beach diet and because I was looking for something high in fiber. These muffins are AMAZING! They don't taste like diet or fiber at all! Even my 7 year old and 5 year old loved them, and keep asking for more. I used walnuts instead of pecans (they boost metabolism) and quick oats instead of the oat flour because I wanted to boost the fiber content. Next time I will use 1/2 the amount when I use quick oats, because the oats tended to fall off, but this did not detract from the muffins. I may even try mixing the quick oats/walnut mixture into the muffin batter. I also used "I Can't Believe It's Not Butter" Light sticks. I have frozen the rest of them, to be used for grab-nuke-n-go breakfasts on days we are running late for school. Thanks for an awesome recipe! Definitely a keeper.
