"These turned out very nicely! I made several changes to lighten them up a bit. I also tweaked the batter to yield 12 vs 10 muffins. By changing over some of the oil to flaxseed and using 1/2 whole wheat pastry flour vs all AP flour. I also decreased the sugar content in these as well. I swapped out walnuts and used pecans instead, plush added a few more spices. If you would like to see the lighted up recipe check out my blog:"

"These muffins are really good. Another recipe I have uses too much oil and so the end product is oily and I didn't like that. These are perfect and I like the walnuts in them too. I even added a couple teaspoons of flax seeds. I'm definitely making these again. The topping is tasty too, I like the crunchiness of the brown sugar and walnuts."

"These are delicious! I love that they are low sugar. I add a bit of cinnamon in the batter as well and reduce the sugar for the topping to 1/8 cup. Also use whole wheat flour for an extra burst of healthyness."
