"I was not impressed with these. My family prefers the pumpkin-apple streusel muffins. They have more flavour and are very moist."

"I was looking for something without so much flour... and these are a great choice. Not too sweet (I'm not a "sweet muffin" fan) but also not at all bland. I'm not a fan of raisins so I put in choc chips for my son... he can't eat enough of 'em! I would highly recommend doubling it... made 19 good muffins."

"Very yummy...but the dozen muffins this recipe supposedly makes came out pretty small. I agree with an early reviewer who suggested doubling it to make 18. I used whole wheat flour and Splenda Brown Sugar Blend to make the recipe even healthier.

"I make a lot of muffins and this one is really only ok. It's not too sweet and does not have the best texture. They were fine, just not great. I could tell my family thought the same thing and when I put them out for breakfast (we ate them as part of dinner last night), they said "These again? Oh.""

"These are nice and pumpkin-y, without being too dense. However, I think they need more pumpkin pie spice--I am going to double it next time. Also, they seem a little bit flat to me. Next time I'll probably make only 8 muffins with this much batter, or I'll double the recipe and make 18 muffins. Overall, though, these are great! :)"

"I live in the Netherlands where we can not buy canned pumpkin so I always microwave whole small pumpkins and scoop out the flesh. It works great and gives wonderful color and aroma. Makes me think of home. The muffins turned out just like the photo.
