"Great basic recipe..I used melted coconut oil for the oil,2/3 cup, then added 1/4 cup water with 1/2 cup Benefiber and a tsp of vanilla. I used regular sized milk chocolate chips. It took 4 more minutes to cook but turned out delicious! A bit fluffier than the original recipe which I had tried once."

"I actually really love these muffins. I've made them three times now! The first time I made them the batter was super runny but I had followed the directions completely and they turned out great. The second I tried only adding the wet ingredients "until moistened" and it was a disaster.

My best result came from adding the dry ingredients to the liquid ingredients, instead of the other way around!
The batter is sticky, so watch out!! But they muffins do have a delightful, buttery taste that my roommates and I all enjoy!"

"First of all, it really bugs me when people lower the ratings based on their alterations to the recipe.

So I followed this recipe exactly as it reads. It has a fantastic biscuit flavor. I sent a batch to work with my husband!
My advice, try the recipe first then alter as needed. :)"

"Horrible recipe for a muffin. The density reminded me more of a biscuit than anything. Had to add almost a full teaspoon of vanilla and almost 1/3 more cup of oil. Still was too thick. The baking temperature and time is also bad. The outside was crunchy and the "muffin" was totally dry. Waste of baking supplies."

"I always make every muffin recipe "healthy". For this recipe I used 1/2 whole wheat flour, 1/2 white flour, chia seeds (about 1/2 cup), flax seed (about 1/2 cup), substituted cold pressed coconut oil (can buy at Costco- softened to the point of almost melted), and increased the milk to the point that the batter was thick but workable. These muffins turned out great. I tried the recipe in the original form as well and these were way better. My kids are picky and they can't eat these fast enough. I wrap individually in Saran and store in the freezer - pop in the microwave for a healthy breakfast!"
