"Delicious! I used a scant 3/4 cup each whole wheat and whole grain barley flour, and used brown sugar for a bit more wholesome goodness. My husband says they taste like apple pie in a muffin.

My 3 Tbsp scoop (barely filled) was the perfect size to portion out the batter."

"These were good but not great to me. I used whole wheat flour for half the flour called for, and I used almond milk instead of the nonfat milk. Perhaps that is why they weren't great. I'm open to other apple muffin recipes."

"Excellent! These muffins are delicious. The only change I made is I followed one reviewers suggestion and used 1/2 cup whole wheat flour and the rest all purpose flour. I also added chopped walnuts to half the recipe (for my husband). Other than that, I followed the recipe and ended up with moist, fluffy and delicious muffins. A lot of apple muffin recipes are too dense and aren't fluffy. These are fluffy deliciousness!"

"Delicious muffins! I wasnt so sure about the raisins but they are a nice addition. Batter is a bit thick but yields tender, moist muffins!"

"The picture doesn't show the muffins very clearly - they look a bit blurry. I wish I could see what they looked like more!"

"My husband and 3 kiddies agree, these are the BEST muffins ever!! I substitute 3/4 cup whole wheat flour for 3/4 cup all-purpose flour to make it a bit more healthy."
