Reviews for Morning Glory Muffins
"Very good! I'm giving it 4 stars based on original recipe. I made a few changes based on previous reviews and my family's tastes. The muffins were perfectly moist with 3/4 cup oil (I used a half cup of oil and 1/4 cup applesauce). I am glad I listened to the other reviewers as I am sure one cup oil would have made the muffins too oily. I also reduced sugar to one cup because i added applesauce and didn't want them to be too sweet. I also used Craisins instead of raisins, and omitted the nuts. My husband doesn't prefer nuts but they would have been fabulous with them in my opinion. I will make this recipe again with these revisions"
"Very flavorful and moist. I made them into mini loaves to give as gifts, I will use this recipe again."
"I baked these adding about 1/2 tsp more cinnamon, increased chopped pecans to 3/4 cup, otherwise using the recipe as is....They are DELICIOUS. My husband and I LOVE them. I put 1 dozen in the freezer for later. Great fast Breakfast muffins."
"I used shredded zuchini instead of apple, sour cream instead of oil and added chocolate chips - very good. Hope the kids like them when they get home :)"
"I agree with the recipe submitter - these are almost the best muffins I have ever eaten! All the different flavours of apple/carrot/pecan/coconut together are incredible. I did, like other reviewers, find them slightly oily so next time I will add less oil."
