    I really enjoyed this recipe, as described, made 12 servings, very tasty... think I might have put a bit more cinnamon in but I adore cinnamon so I guess thats to each persons taste! Thanks for a lovely recipe... I am a weight watcher so it was great to get a low fat recipe which was actually enjoyable!

    They weren't flavorful at all and they had a really chewy outer layer on them that wasn't good.

    We thought these were quite good. I did make one small change--I used 3/4 c oatmeal (soaked in the milk for a few minutes) and 3/4 c ap flour. I just like the texture and fiber you get from oatmeal. I also left the peel on the apple for fiber. Finally, I sprinkled the tops with a very little bit of cinnamon sugar after they came out of the oven. These are not super sweet, but were just sweet enough for our tastes. DH ate 7, so they must be a keeper :). Thanks, Chris!

    The texture of the muffins was very good but the taste was pretty bland. Might do better with some sort of glaze on top.

    Easy to make and very tasty! I made the mistake of using paper liners and the muffins really stuck to them, so, next time I will follow the directions as posted!:) Thanks for posting!

I also have an eBay business which is a fun hobby that makes a little extra money! My interest in cooking focuses on making healthy dishes that are more satisfying than the higher fat and higher sugar versions. If I had a month off with no responsibilities, I would spend it at a luxury spa. <br /> <br /></p>
