Reviews for Brown Sugar Oat Muffins
"Great muffin. Hardy texture. I added pumpkin pie spice. Perfect without butter, jam or anything."
"Good muffin that is not too sweet."
"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!"
"Make these often for my family. Men tend to like the heartiness of these muffins, I've found."
"These muffins are nice to serve with jam as a breakfast treat. They also make a nice after school snack. They freeze well too."
"Delicious! Perfect breakfast muffins."
"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!! :)"
