This may be one of my favorite muffin recipes ever--and I make a LOT of muffins! Tender crumb, great taste, easy to make! The only changes I made were to omit the orange peel (I didn't have any), added a 1/2 teaspoon of orange flavoring and a teaspoon of vanilla, and left the nuts out of the cinnamon sugar topping. I also baked them in jumbo muffin tins and got 12 eye-appealing and wonderful tasting muffins. I will definitely be making these muffins again!

I followed the recipe exactly as it was written. The muffins are good, but they have too much oil. I can taste the oil in the muffins, next time I'm going to substitute applesauce or reduce the amount of oil. It also took me 25 minutes to cook, not 15 to 18.

My muffins are baking now! :) I Only have rolled oats, but I had a can of orange juice concentrate . It yielded 1 1/2 cups liquid when defrosted, so I just used that figuring the extra liquid will help process the less processed oats *hopefully fingers crossed*. I also chose to use allspice vs cinnamon just cause I like it better & have kinda been obsessed lately. ...& apparently I left out the baking soda...joys of parenting a toddler :) Lets hope they turn out as amazin as they smell :)update: they taste great! wouldn't even know I forgot the baking soda :) Made 24 muffins & 1 small loaf.

Absolutely delicious! I was looking for an orange quick bread recipe to make for Sunday breakfast & saw this one. Since I had blueberries on hand that I needed to use up, I made these! Got rave reviews from the whole family, even the non-berry lovers. The only thing I omitted was the nuts in the topping. Didn't have any on hand. They were perfect without them! Will definitely make often!

Very flavorful and moist. I used fresh orange from our tree. This will be my go to recipe for blueberry muffins. It makes alot, so I freeze most for later.
