    Oh my this recipe came at exactly the right time. I am trying to clean out the fridge (because we go away for the winter) and needed to use up some odds and ends. This recipe must have been made for me. Thanks for making my leftovers healthy.

    I loved the great photo and couldn't stop thinking about the apples/applesauce mixed with the muffin! I forgot to buy molasses and was initially crestfallen, but decided to go forward with the recipe, using 1/2 cup honey, 2 TBS light brown sugar, with several shakes of cinnamon. This made a lot of batter and my tins were practically overfilling(made 12 with a little batter leftover), but I do like a big muffin. These did bake in about 20 minutes. My finished product looked just like the photo and tasted great. I felt the cinnamon gave it a spicy (molasses) flavor and loved the chunks of apples. I knew it was risky making the substitutions, but I am used to molasses in a bran muffin and thought these were a great copycat. Roxygirl

    I found this recipe when your muffin cookbook was featured on the home page. These were wonderful and they freeze very well. I have added these to my public OAMC mufin cookbook for great make ahead breakfasts and snacks, thanks!

    My family likes muffins for breakfast but have gotten tired of the two I usually make--blueberry and banana-nut. We all thought these muffins were extremely good and very healthy also. I loved the chunky bits of apple and raisins which added a lot to the flavor and texture. Thanks, glad I found this recipe.
