"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!"

"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?"

"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!!)"

"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."

"My son and I made these on Wednesday. Love the recipe because it uses 1/4, 1/3, 1/2 and 1 cup measurements. Good math refresher just before school starts. OH, and I also love the recipe because the muffins are fantastic! They did a disappearing act in my house. Very very good!"

"These were inedible. I did sub apple juice for applesauce but I wouldn't think that would make that much difference."

"I was very pleased with these. They weren't heavy, and the balance between the peanut butter and strawberry flavors was just right."

"With the way the economy is these days, it is nice to see a recipe that is from scratch. I am eager to try this recipe for my son. It also is great cause if your running late you can grab a muffin and eat it on the way to school or work."
