Reviews for Good-for-You Morning Muffins
"Too many ingredients, made me have to shop before I tired to make it. Kids and Husband said it was not sweet enough. I liked it!"
"I really like this recipe however I would think they would use oat bran instead of white flour. I used coconut palm sugar in stead of reg sugar. It has a lower glycemic index. Great muffins! Enjoy"
