"I won't be making these muffins again. I was so disappointed; the muffins are horribly dense. I kept re-reading the recipe thinking I had missed an ingredient (i.e. milk, etc.) but I hadn't. In addition to being dense, they were flavorless even after adding cinnamon and a maple glaze. Oh well; can't win them all."

"I just made this today and it is excellent, came out super moist. Only I didn't have any yogurt so I substituted the yogurt with coconut milk and it worked just fine. Very quick and easy for the kids breakfast. Thanks for this recipe it was a morning life saver."

"I didn't have yogurt...and not quite enough sour cream, so I added milk to the sour cream to make the right amount. And sprinkled some chopped pecans on top. Absolutely delicious! I love oatmeal muffins, and the addition of nice big blueberries was perfect. Will be trying with cranberries, too."

"Followed the recipe as it stated but added lemon zest to the batter and used frozen blueberries instead of fresh ones. The muffins were moist, a bit dense and had the right amount of sweetness to our taste. A keeper."

"So grateful for everyone else's reviews... These are great! I made a few modifications also: I used old fashioned oats (I think they are interchangeable with instant ones). I almost doubled the brown sugar. I didn't use as much cinnammon or nutmeg as the recipe called for. I added raw sugar to the tops - be sure to do that before you bake them or else you'll make a terrible mess! I added more blueberries - keep a handful of blueberries aside for that last little bit of batter in the bottom that always seems to have no fruit! I used Greek vanilla yogurt, but I think next time I will use half plain and half vanilla. The vanilla is tasty but a little over powering. This recipe is definitely going in my recipe book!"

"VERY good muffins! Be aware that the batter is very very thick, so don't let that worry you and don't try to thin it out. They have a wonderful taste and were very easy to make! My picky 3 y/o loved them! Next time I might cut down on the cinamon just a bit as it was very prominent flavor (however not in a bad way). I did sprinkle some raw sugar on top prior to baking to give them a nice "crust". Will certainly make these again!"

The oats give it a great texture and the nutmeg give it great flavor. I added some dried cranberries I had on hand as an extra twist. I am looking forward to trying other fruit and berries in place of blueberries."
