"I made theses a few weeks ago for a meeting at work and everyone loved them! I used whole wheat pastry flour to help them rise a little better and fiber one cereal instead of all bran. They turned out great! I will definitely will be making these again!"

"Although these were fairly tasty, the muffins didn't rise much, if at all. Maybe the lack of salt is to blame? I did like the combo of apples, bananas and blueberries."
