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

"First off, thank you for this recipe. I really do like it.

Good muffin. Not to sweet, which is great. Seemed a tad dry on the first batch (That is why only 4 stars), but the 2nd time around, I added 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce, cut the amount of oil in half, added 1/4 cup ground flax, cut the sugar down to 1/2 cup (Used white, was out of brown both times), doubled the vanilla. Also used unsweetened almond milk. Both times added 1/2 cup of raisins. If I had made these exact changes the 1st time I made them, I would have given 5 stars. Next time, Im thinking adding some lemon juice and poppy seeds. So many possibility with this recipe."

"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!"

"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. :)"
