"Whole wheat flour works great! These are delicious!"

"They were good but not outstanding. Very dense and kind of dry. More of traditional shortcake texture then a muffin texture. But for a less fat/less sugar recipe it's not bad."

"If you are looking for a good lower-sugar muffin this is it. I made first like the recipe except i used whole eggs and they were good. Next time, I omitted the water & blueberries, used one whole egg, and added 2 mashed bananas and 1/2 t vanilla. This is now my go-to banana oatmeal muffin recipe! I do use White Lily flour, which always bakes up more soft and moist than other flours."

"This is a very heavy muffin. They are tasty but not a light snack. I used milk instead of water and they tasted good. I got about 16 muffins out of the recipe."

"Love blueberry muffins; love oat muffins...didn't love the two together. But this oat muffin had a great taste and texture and I will use it again...maybe (instead of blueberries) with peaches as suggested by another user, maybe with apples and raisins/Craisins."

"These muffins are so yummy! They are very flavorful but not too sweet - definitely a healthier alternative to traditional blueberry muffins. The only change I made was substituting milk for water because I wanted a creamier flavor. Excellent recipe that I will be making again!"

"These muffins were easy to make. I added 1/4 cup Wheat Germ to them, and substituted a large chopped peach for the blueberries. I also added a handful of sliced almonds. Next time I will use whole wheat flour-I didn't have any on hand. They were very good, the oats give them a chewy texture. Great for an after school snack or a quick breakfast with some yogurt."
