This was such a waste! These muffins have a gummy, soggy texture and are flavorless. If that is what the reviews are calling 'moist', they can keep them. Not to mention half of the muffin sticks to the paper liner. I used applesauce, milk and whole wheat flour with some cinnamon. I can't imagine the muffins would be any different using alternate ingredients. They were so disappointing the one time I'd rather not risk another try.
just terrible. i used chai tea and bananas and even added some spices and a bit of sugar based on the recommendations from the comments but it didnt help at all. they have a weird texture (i guess i'd call it gummy. and dense) and no taste. after i tasted the first ones out of the oven and realized how bad they were, i added lots more sugar to the batter yet to go into the oven but all the sugar in the world couldn't save these.
Thank you, Diana! This is my go-to healthy breakfast oatmeal muffin recipe. I've made it every which way for several years now, and it always comes out of the oven tasting great! My husband and I love it! One of my favorite combination is to use applesauce for the pulp, cold coffee for the liquid, toasted walnuts, sunflower seeds, and blueberries. Pure decadence if you add vegan chocolate chips to any combination. I really like how you use just one bowl, the sequence of mixing the ingredients, no fat or sugar added, and the resulting texture. I cook the muffins until they are well browned on the top (longer than recommended).
I really love this recipe. I made it with orange juice, pureed banana and dried apricots. I also added a 1/4 brown sugar. It's a great snack or breakfast. I love that it has no fat and that it is so versatile. Next time, i want to use sweet potatoes instead of banana, milk instead of juice and maybe add spices and chocolate chips. Thanks for sharing!
