    These are the best muffins EVER! Such an easy recipe and they are great as breakfast with coffee or a snack later in the day or an after dinner treat! One hint: add the cranberries after the mix has been mixed so that you don't get the dry mix in the creases of the dried cranberries.

    This has become on of my favorites. Very moist. They also freeze well enabling me to make a double batch and enjoy them longer - I just pull one out of the freezer and warm it up in the toaster oven with a bit of butter - yum! I did make them one time using 1/2 white and 1/2 whole wheat flour for added fiber and had good luck with that modification.

    This recipe was definitely good. The muffins I thought turned out a bit too sweet and could be a tad moister. I only baked them for about 13 or 14 minutes. I also cut the sugar to 1/2 cup but I would cut it even more next time, and although the sugar sprinkled on top is a nice idea, I probably leave that step out next time. Good overall.

    A delicious recipe, and really good for you! I did make some substitutions to reduce the calorie content and raise the fiber content. I replaced half the flour with whole wheat flour. I eliminated the oil, replacing it with a half cup natural unsweetened apple sauce. I only used a 1/2 cup of the brown sugar and I didn't use the turbinado sugar. All those adjustments, and they're still delicious!

    Delicious and super easy to make! I'll make this again using applesauce in place of oil next time, but as is they are great.

    Amazing cupcake! The timing was exact and so were the measurements. Really tasty, has a bit of everything and the flavors match perfectly. Just make it.. If you don't then I pity you for having to miss out on this.

    These are fantastic! I altered them a little...used 2/3 cup of egg whites instead of whole eggs, and then added about 1/4 cup more wheat germ to even out consistency. Didn't add orange rind or turbinado sugar. I used a mix of dried cranberries, blueberries, and sour cherries, and added about 1/2 cup 60% semi-sweet dark chocolate chips.

    I reduced the sugar to half cup, but will keep the original amount next time. Nice muffins, recipe is a keeper.
