MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 22, 2014

I thought these were dry as well, but still tasty. I used grape spreadable fruit and they turned out beautiful. Wonder if some pudding mix would help with the dryness? Not sure, but will watch for suggestions!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 3, 2012

These weren't bad, but they weren't as good as I expected. The peanut butter mixture seemed a bit dry and requires you to drink a large glass of milk just to wash it down. Maybe I didn't put enough jam inside?

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 19, 2011

These were great! I didn't have strawberry though, so I substituted with some blackberry jam that I had and they were wonderful. I will make these again for sure. The fact that they are a healthy treat makes it a great option to give my kids, or whole family, and feel good about it. (Great on the go breakfast!!)

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 30, 2010

These tasted very good... however, they made a huge mess. The strawberry preserves leaked out of the muffins while baking, getting sticky, baked on preserves all over my muffin pan. Be sure to put plenty of the muffin batter on top of the strawberry if you make them.
