Fairly easy to make but results were super underwhelming. The muffins were dry and there was very little cinnamon roll flavor. I don't know how to make the muffins less dry other than to maybe increase liquid slightly (batter was real thick) and I'd definitely double the filling recipe for flavor. Also, the icing was runny and mainly tasted like yogurt. If I were to try again, I would use more cream cheese and less yogurt.
Thankfully I read all the reviews ahead. I opted to use 1 cup of white flour and 1 cup of whole wheat. I also made sure to really whip the egg mixture well, thinking it would make them less dense than what has been described here. These 2 changes seemed to alleviate the "too dry" complaint. But in the end for the amount of work involved, they were just ok flavor-wise. There are so many Cooking Light muffin recipes that are better and less involved.
Used King Arthur white whole wheat flour and Dannon Light and Fit Greek Yogurt, Vanilla flavor. Batter was a bit thick, filling was good, muffins a bit crumbly overall. Glaze was too thick to drizzle, so "frosted" them instead. Glaze had a nice tartness which contrasted with the filling. Muffins just seemed "heavy", but the filling and glaze may reappear in another item/recipe.
Horrible. Time consuming. Dry as sawdust even with the buttermilk and oil. Did not change recipe, though I was skeptical of total whole wheat flour. My instinct was correct. Pointless to publish recipes that need to be changed to be Palatable. I will no longer use this site.
Would have rated no stars but system didn't allow.
Mediocre recipe. My family of 4 voted these as "thanks, but do not make again". Dry texture, icing did not drizzle.
It was a decent recipe but we started off by adding extra cinnamon and our bake time was 3 minutes less than recipe called for, so ours were not dry. Also used a different oil (sunflower) as I do not like canola. That could have helped. The glaze....it was very thick and we thought it needed to be a bit sweeter. Added sugar and thinned it a bit with milk. Would actually give it 3.5 stars if I could!
Dry. My daughter said it just tasted like a wheat muffin. Too bad. It looked good.
Followed the recipe exactly. Fairly underwhelming. Not as dry as some of the other reviews seemed to have baked up, but still nothing wow. Adding some chopped apples or raisins to the batter would probably improve flavor and texture. The only positive is that these really did mix and bake quickly, so at least I didn't waste too much time.
These were just ok. Agree with others they were too dry. I also weighed the flour and followed recipe exactly. If you're doing weight watchers, one muffin is basically an entire meal and this was not worth the points!
I followed the directions exactly as written. These were very dry and tasteless. I agree with the previous comment--no amount of glaze will help. I will not make these again.
Agree these are a little dry and we thought they could use more cinnamon. Liked the glaze with the Greek yogurt. Probably would not make again. Followed recipe exactly; weighed flour. A little disappointing.
These turned out great! I was a little skeptical about the frosting because I don't like Greek yogurt but it was delicious! They were easy to make - I'm keeping this recipe for easy weekend breakfast treats!
I figured it would be dry so used 1 c all purpose flour and 1 c white whole wheat; used only butter in the filling and added fresh ground nutmeg and a little cardamom and baked the absolute minimum amount of time. I only had regular cream cheese and regular plain yogurt. Probably not as calorie conscious as the original but not bad. I would increase the cinnamon tho
These taste like dry, dense cinnamon flour. Not even drenching in glaze helps. I followed the recipe exactly and they look just like the pictures - they just taste terrible.
