MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 10, 2015

"We loved this recipe! The oats really add a lot of body to the muffins! And the citrus really brightens it up !"

MY REVIEW

"My whole family loved these! They were very flavorful and moist. I used 1/2 the orange juice called for (only had 1 orange) and used buttermilk for the rest of the liquid. They were perfect."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 15, 2008

"The only thing I could recommend after looking at the recipe which certainly contains enough orange zest and juice would be to add some vanilla extract. I think this adds to most any baking recipe. I guess another extract could also be used, e.g. lemon, etc., depending on your taste buds."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 14, 2008

"Made these muffins this morning; they need something (perhaps more orange peel?) to inhance the taste. They are so bland. Anyone else feel this way?"
