Reviews for Three-Grain Muffins
"These muffins are very good if you like a true bran taste, which I do. Using the different cereals was a twist and I like using buttermilk. I may add some spices next time. But very good."
"These muffins are okay, but definitely need a little something added for some spice or flavour. Maybe the raisins etc like Bricon suggested or some cinnamon added to mix might be nice."
"I've made a number of times for myself and even for a coffee bar. Easy, keeps well in the fridge and you can always add flavours in small batches - raisins, dried cranberry, banana, choc chips. Definitely a family favourite."
