    I was looking for a healthy kid-friendly muffin recipe to replace or alternate w/ my carrot-zucchini-apple sauce ones. Thought I'd try these. Of course on a holiday Monday, I didn't have all the ingredients. I ground oats in the processor as I didn't have oat bran, used plain yogurt for the buttermilk, increased to 1 tsp of cinnamon, added 1 tsp of vanilla, shredded the apple, and raisins only in half of the muffins. I made 12 small 'regular' muffins. I think they tasted good, my daughter wasn't so keen. They came out of the silicone cups well, but stuck to the paper cups (not enough fat?). I will make them again.

    I altered the recipe a bit - I'm not a fan of raisins in muffins, so I omitted and added extra apple. Also added extra cinnamon. Very easy to make. Tasty too, but perhaps a little too healthy for what I was craving.

    These muffins are absolutely delicious. I used regular milk instead of buttemilk, ground bran cereal + oatmeal in place of oat bran. I threw in a couple handfuls of blueberries and didn't use raisins. These muffins are "secretly" nutritious - my 2- and 4-year-olds even love them. Will definitely make again.

    WOW! Top of my recipe book! These are amazing! I just made them and my 3 year old son ate them like candy! I actually had to tell him no more. I used some modifications that "Quite Contrary" suggested- with the vanilla and I added cranberries instead of raisins, and added a few fresh blueberries, and double the cinnamon, and added 1/2 tsp allspice. I will be using this recipe often! Quick, healthy, and low in calories- perfect for a mum! Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe!
