"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."
