These were very moist and were tasty. However, I baked as directed and the top was not crisp. The texture was fine, but it was soft throughout like other muffins, and not exactly what I was expecting here based on the description.

Great! I went out and bought white whole wheat flour specifically for this recipe, so that I could follow it exactly. I did a pan of mini muffins and there was enough left for about a dozen regular-sized.
