    Just made some with pumpkin puree and pumpkin spice added. With a toaster over since our regular is broke. Had to bake a little longer. Outside had a crunch but moist inside. Pretty good.

      How much pumpkin puree did you add? Sounds great!

      • Tam November 12, 2015 at 11:14 am #

        I believe I did between 3/4 to 1 cup. Probably either would be just fine! I haven’t made this in a while though!

    Just made these, and they came out great! I added zest from about half a lemon plus a full cup of blueberries. I think next time I’ll use some brown sugar. Sooo good!

    I replace the sugar and fruit with one 8oz jar of jam. Works great and it makes a more decadent muffin!

    I too used 1 cup of organic strawberry jam. It was amazing! My girls devoured them. Very easy to make.

    I made some with coconut, cinnamon, and almond butter. I also combined cocoa and ground ginger to make gingerbread muffins, these are great.

    Hello, can the oil be substituted with applesauce in this recipe?

  9. Louise May 18, 2015 at 5:54 am #

    I made these with a lot of substitutions and they were still WONDERFUL!Used about 1/2 of the sugar, using light brown sugar. Used Coconut oil, but only 2 tbsp and lowfat plain yogurt to make it up to 1/4 cup. Added a pinch baking soda. Used milk not water. Added some cinnamon, nixed the vanilla as I had none. Used pink lady apples and WAY more than 1 cup (probably 1.5-2 cups), there were so many chunks of apple I wanted to call them muffin-ed apples instead of apple muffins and I was a bit nervous that they would just turn into soggy messes.Made 8 generous muffins and they are AMAZING. Didn’t taste them fresh but the next morning they were fantastic. Will be amazing as a treat or warmed with vanilla ice cream! Will make them again with even less sugar to see if I can make them more breakfasty. Great recipe!

    Can this recipe also be baked using an 8×8 pan or 9×9 pan? Also will the baking time need to be increased? Thank you, Mary

      HI Mary –
      While it should work, we have not tried it! Yes, you will want to increase baking time. I would suggest checking at the called for 25 minutes, and going from there. Let us know how it goes!

    I usually double the recipe, and by the time I’ve added fruit and nuts, there’s enough batter for 12 muffins and one small laof pan, which takes a little longer to bake. Today i made them with craisins and a 1/2 can of Solo poppy seed filling. You can also do canned pumpkin and pumpkin pie spices.

    Love, love, love this recipe. Usually make with bananas and pecans and substitute water for almond milk or soy creamer for a rich muffins. Even our non-gf friends like them. Thanks for the awesome products.

    Just made these with bananas and chocolate chips- so easy I made them for my child’s lunch while we were getting ready this morning. I love them! I hope my child will eat it at lunch cause he is super picky!

    This is the easiest baking mix. You can add nearly anything to it and it works every time. Very versatile. Handles substitutions well.

    Just made the pumpkin and spice version, very good, moist, yummy! Now I’d like to know if anyone has added cocoa for a choclate version, thinking I may just have to try.

  18. Carol January 31, 2016 at 1:39 pm #

    I’ve been making this recipe for several years and we absolutely love it. It is very versatile! I usually make a double or triple batch of mini muffins and freeze them!

    I haven’t tried cocoa powder but I have used chocolate chip semi sweet morsels!

  20. Lee April 28, 2016 at 6:45 pm #

    I use this recipe weekly for my family of 6 – we love it! I always use applesauce in place of the oil/butter. I’ve made many variations over the years and all have been wonderful. If I double the recipe and add in some fruit or chocolate chips I am able to get 24 regular size muffins. Our favorite is chocolate chocolate chip. I add 1/4 cup cocoa powder, a dash of nutmeg and a handful of chocolate chips for a single recipe. So thankful for a quick and easy recipe, thank you!

    I tried this recipe this morning and they were great. We are a family of 8 so I wanted to make 24 muffins. Going by the amount shown for a single recipe I quadrupled it and ended up with 36 muffins! No problem because we love leftovers. I used 1/2 coconut oil and 1/2 butter and instead of 2 C sugar I did 1 1/2 C and they were plenty sweet. We really enjoyed them and I can’t wait to try some of the variations in the other comments!
