With Kansas being one of the top wheat-producing states, it seems only fitting to share a recipe containing whole wheat flour. These are great muffins to have for breakfast or a late night snack with a cup of hot cocoa. —Regina Stock, Topeka, Kansas

"Great muffin. Hardy texture. I added pumpkin pie spice. Perfect without butter, jam or anything."

"I was looking for a base recipe for oatmeal muffins and this one is perfect! I added in 1-1/2 cups of chopped apples that were mixed with cinnamon and sugar. I also added a streusel to the top, made of flour, brown sugar and butter. The muffins baked up perfectly, they're soft, and taste wonderful. Great recipe!"

"Great mild oat muffin! I don't feel like I'm serving cupcakes for breakfast! : ) Entire family loves them warm out of the oven and we even renamed these- "Mommy's Good Morning Muffins""

"I also forgot to add to my last review that I also substituted organic coconut oil (melted) instead of the canola oil.. and they were very light and much healthier for my family. :)"

"I thought that these turned out wonderful! I used organic whole wheat flour and instead of just using vanilla extract, I used 3/4 tsp almond extract & 1/4 tsp vanilla. They turned out so flavorful and even my picky eaters begged for seconds! Because I am a busy mom of four, I mixed up the dry ingredients the night before and just added the wet ingredients the next morning. I am also going to make several more batches of the dry ingredients, package and label them for future breakfast.. so that all I have to do is pull out the bag, add the extract, milk and fresh eggs and breakfast is served!! :)"
