"These muffins were fantastic! I followed the advice of another reviewer and used brown sugar. I can't wait to make these for my mom....she LOVES this type of cookie, and I think this muffin will blow her away!"

"I substituted 3/4 cup whole wheat flour for 3/4 of the white flour and skim milk for the 2% milk. I did not make the glaze. They still tasted great and were a tiny bit healthier."

"As a recent contest finalist, I had these muffins at the Taste of Home headquarters, and I loved them! That's why I looked up the recipe-- I just wish they didn't have so many calories, but that's what makes them so good, I guess!"

"These are good, but I personally wasn't wowed by them. For the price of macadamia nuts, I think I'll look for something else to make with the ones that are left."
