Reviews forPumpkin Oat Bran Muffins
"Do not make these with paper muffin cups. Mine stuck like crazy and we’re nearly ruined. This advice should absolutely be included in the basic instructions. I subbed wheat bran because it’s what I had on hand. Decent muffins overall."
"I made these muffins this morning and they are delicious. I used a recommendation in one of the reviews about doubling the spice and it was perfect - not overbearing. I used paper muffin cups sprayed with cooking spray and the muffins still stuck to the paper. I recommend just greasing your muffin tin and not using the paper cups. We will definitely be having these muffins again.I highly recommend this recipe as a Volunteer Field Editor for Taste of Home."
"A nice fall recipe. I used 1/3 cup dark molasses instead of the brown sugar. I doubled the pumpkin pie spice .I also used whole wheat pastry flour instead of the white flour. Added 1/4 cup raisins, and 1/4 cup chopped walnuts. Dark and earthy, not too sweet."
"I love this recipe but I made a few changes. I substituted whole wheat for white flour and I only used 1/2 the amount of sugar. I also added about 1/4 cup of chopped pecans and 1/4 cup of raisins. They were fabulous! Then I made another change the next time I used this recipe. I substituted 1 cup of mashed bananas for the pumpkin and I didn't add raisins or the pumpkin pie spice. My husband loved them! :)"
"Just finished eating a muffin! Really like these. I did change it a little as I try to avoid oils. I used 1/8 cup of unsweetened applesauce instead of the oil and also used 1/4 cup coconut flour along with 1/4 cup white flour. Will make again and again!"
"This recipe was only so-so, not amazing, but I did make some adjustments that might have sabotaged the outcome. I didn't have oat bran, so I just put some oats in the food processor and made oat flour. I also used coconut oil in place of the canola. I added dried apples and some chopped walnuts. I will keep the recipe to make again, though, because it's nice to find really healthy muffin recipes that don't have too much sugar and oil."
"Love them. I've made them 3 or 4 times now. My husband and toddler like them also. :)"
"These are moist, this recipe also made 12 muffins for me as well. I doubled the pumpkin pie spice and added a pinch of cinnamon, but I am a huge spice fan!!"
"Very Good for a healthy muffin. I added pecans and in a pinch, cooked mashed sweet potato works great as a pumpkin substitute!"
"I added a handful of cranberries and raisins, I also added about a tablespoon of molasses to help bring out the pumpkin flavors. I was pleasantly surprised at how much flavor these muffins really had since I have quite a sweet tooth, I wasn't sure I would like them, but they were wonderful!"
