    Amazing replaced bran with oats doubled the recipe and added some coconut and cinnamon

    The muffins turn out better than expected However I added tsp of cinnamon to keep them from being bland and so glad I did. I, also, exchanged the chocolate chips for dried cranberries again so glad I did. I do not like chocolate in muffins especially when I’m reducing sugar in my diet

    These were really tasty and I plan to make them again. I substituted greek yogurt and milk for the buttermilk and it worked well.

    Awesome, used wheat bran and only used cup and a half and they're fantastic. Also did strawberries instead of chocolate chips

    Fabulously delicious I added walnuts and chocolate chips I also used coconut flour And have also substituted the flour for a gluten free type which changed their both consistently dramatically and will not ever consider going back

    Delishious! I substituted little less than 1/2 cp of banana applesauce instead of banana, turned out moist and not too sweet. My two year old loved them!

    I thought the muffins were very easy to make and were a huge hit in my family. I sprinkled a little light brown sugar on top of each muffin before baking. Will definitely make these muffins again soon!!
