"The muffins were so moist and tasty!! :)"

MY REVIEW

"I modified this recipe to make it gluten-free and it turned out addicting! I used 1 1/2 cups white rice flour, 1/3 cup potato starch and filled out the rest of the 2 cups with tapioca starch. That's it. I happened to have a green and a red apple that measured to 2 cups of chopped apple and added it all anyway. I didn't have sour cream so I used Vanilla Kefir instead, and just in case (because of the sweetness of it) I decreased the sugar to 3/4 cup (1/2 cup white and 1/4 cup brown sugar). Ended up with 20 muffins. Delicious, moist, perfect amount of sweetness...A keeper!"

"These muffins taste great! I made some adjustments. I used 1 cup whole wheat flour along with 1 cup all purpose flour. I used 2 cups chopped apples, but next time, I would shred them instead. I used about 1/2 a cup of brown sugar in place of white sugar. I will definitely make these again!"

"These muffins are very moist and tender, I added extra apples to the recipe so the muffins were larger and required an extra seven minutes of cooking time. They came out of the oven beautiful and the whole neighborhood was delighted by the smell."
