    These muffins were delightful without all the guilt. I used a cup of whole wheat and 1/2 all purpose. This makes a lot of cinnamon/sugar topping. I used a little less than a tsp. per muffin and stored the rest for other uses. I did not have a problem with the topping falling off or the muffins being dry. I got exactly 12 regular sized muffins and baked them for 12 minutes. I let the batter and topping sit after they were in the muffin tin for about 10 minutes to soften the oats and to give the topping a chance to get into the batter. These are a new favorite. Thanks for posting!

    Great recipe! Quick and easy to make, tasty and nutritious. I used Egg Beaters and half and half whole wheat pastry flour and all purpose flour and it worked fine. Next time I will try applesauce instead of butter since I didn't find the flavor especially buttery. Mine were just a touch dry but I expect it's because I baked them a minute or two too long. Next time I will add some more vanilla and some cinnamon into the batter, but this is a very good recipe as it stands. No way it could make 24 muffins, though. I barely had enough batter for 12 standard size (smallish, even) muffins. Would be great as mini-muffins though. Thanks!

    these were easy and smelled delicious while baking. i also added a little cinnamon in the mix and the taste was delicious. the only problem i had was they were a little dry, and i only cooked them for 11 min. i should have taken them out at 10 but besides the dryness they were great. i had no problems with the cinnamon falling off. i also used regular muffin tins, not mini. thanks for a fun saturday breakfast!

    The only thing I added was a Tablespoon of cinnamon to the muffin itself and they turned out perfect! My daughter was "limiting" herself to how many she ate because she thought they were junk food! Plenty of extra of topping left for next batch!

    Tasty. My kids don't generally care for the texture of oatmeal in muffins, so I pulsed the oatmeal in my Blendtec a few times before adding it. I subbed the cup of milk for plain yogurt simply because I had some I needed to use up. I did end up adding about a 1/4 cup milk also. In the end the texture was very good. We all enjoyed them.

    Yummy...just finished eating one. I used splenda instead of sugar in the topping as well as the muffin and applesauce instead of margarine and they were great. Thanks for the great recipe.

    Sorry these didn't work out for me. I subbed whole wheat pastry flour for the white flour & it made the muffins dry. thanks anyway!

    My husband and I really enjoyed this recipe. I used 1 cup white flour and 1/2 cup wheat flour, added a little cinnamon to the dry ingredients, and used a snack size container of applesauce instead of butter. I also used hazelnut milk, but that was b/c we didn't have any regular milk. They came out very moist and delicious. Not all of the topping stuck, but most of it did. I made them in regular muffin tins and it made 12. My husband said to add it to the favorites list!

I love reading about food, writing about food, cooking food and.. not surprisingly, eating food. My latest passion is food-photography! I'm still learning a lot, but I'm trying to post photos with all my recipes and reviews. I read recipe books, magazines and food blogs like novels. I get such satisfaction when someone enjoys a meal or dessert that I have prepared. It is the biggest compliment to me when my family and friends rave about my cooking. There are so many terrific recipes on this site. If I'm looking for something, I'm sure to find it here. I do have stacks of my own favorite recipes which I am slowly but surely getting in my cookbooks here . I have had so many awesome reviews and fabulous photos taken of my recipes...
