Followed the main recipe but added chocolate chips and didn't put the sugar on top. The muffins have a great texture and consistency. And they are moist and light. As mentioned above, they don't have a strong pumpkin flavor but I think that is the nature of cooked pumpkin (esp given it's only a cup of puree). My family loved them, will be a new Fall staple.
They turned out pretty good. A little blah in flavor though. Could be because I used 1/2 whole wheat and greek yogurt instead of sour crew,. Will def make again
Very good. I did sub homemade unsweetened applesauce for the oil, and thought they were just fine that way. We added a little whipped butter at the table, so didn't eat them plain, which probably helped. I also got more muffins than the recipe described--got 24 regular-sized muffins. I also added some chopped pecans. Everyone liked them!
These turned out well. I used a 1/4 cup of whole wheat flour and 1/4 cup of rye flour and the rest white flour. I added chopped walnuts, but otherwise followed the recipe. I would definitely make them again, but would probably decrease the sugar just a tad because I'd want them as breakfast muffins and I don't like too sweet for breakfast.
I made these awesomely delicious muffins and they are SUPER moist!! Not to mention flavorful as well as simple to make. I topped some muffins with the sugar as recipe called for. For some I added cranberries, coconut and coconut sugar, for different flavors.
these are really good for a light, quick snack. very easy to make but I ended up getting 22 muffins from this recipe and only put them in the oven for about 17 minutes. they're a little dry and could use more sugar on top but overall I really like these!
These are great. I used low fat yogurt instead of sour cream and pumpkin pie spice instead of cinnamon. Great with a good cup of coffee.
These muffins are fabulous. I altered the recipe a bit, adding half whole wheat and half all purpose flour, 1/2 teaspoon ginger and 1/4 teaspoon cloves. I bake for twenty minutes. Recipe makes 18 and they last a day in my house... They're that good.
Caveat to my review: I substituted applesauce for the vegetable oil to lighten the recipe even more. Well, don't do that. These muffins, while tasty, were kind of dry. And it probably wouldn't hurt to add more spice - ginger, nutmeg, and/or allspice. However, I will definitely make them again. Next time using the oil and more spice.
I made these according to the recipie with no add ins and loved them. They are light and fluffy and tasty! I liked the flavor without extra spice but know that tastes vary. To me these are just right with a cup of hot tea and some jazz on the radio...
Outstanding. Very moist and full of flavour!
These are terrific. I used Greek yogurt instead of sour cream, since that's what I had, and added in a lot more cinnamon, plus some nutmeg and pumpkin pie spice. I also put in more pumpkin than the recipe called for, by a few tablespoons. They look beautiful when they're done and taste great once they've settled a bit. The texture wasn't great fresh out of the oven, but I made them in the evening and the next morning they were perfect. The kids loved them and so did everyone at work. Really tasty.
Great pumpkin flavor in these little muffins - I'd definitely increase the spices next time but the texture was wonderful and the sugar topping gave a pleasing crunch. Pulled from the oven at 16 minutes at which point they were perfect.
Because I didn't have all-purpose flour, I made a few modifications, but these muffins still turned out to be pretty good. I used 2 cups of bread flour and 3/4 cup of whole wheat flour, and I substituted greek yogurt for the fat-free sour cream. I had to increase the milk a bit because the dough got too thick. I also added some pumpkin pie spice and chocolate chips! Probably because of some of the modifications, the muffins didn't need as much cooking time -- 22 minutes would have been better. Still, the end result was quite delicious. My kids scarfed them down.
Great fall muffin recipe! I added more spices and extra pumpkin which made them very moist. I also added chopped pecans to the topping. Yummy!!!
This is a great base recipe--I've made these several times already this fall (my kids love them). I add a whole can of pumpkin, which gives these a better pumpkin flavor and keeps them moist. I sometimes add in chocolate chips or ground flaxseed.
These are pretty good! I added 1/4 tsp. cloves and 1/2 tsp. ginger to make it spicier. I also did half the batch with chocolate chip cookies ... yum!
My 2-year-old son absolutely adores these. I also subbed pumpkin pie spice for the cinnamon and it's a great improvement. I'll definitely be trying the yoghurt and applesauce subs. I love that it uses up canned pumpkin so quickly, and they freeze well too.
Good recipe, nothing special about it though. I guess I was hoping it tasted as decadent as the ones at Panera Bread!
LOVED this recipe. Very easy and delicious. I took the advice of some past rate-ees and added extra cinnamon, a dash of pumpkin pie spice, and substituted 1.5 c of the all purpose flour for whole wheat flour for that extra healthy kick. Very scrumptious indeed.
These were yummy! My husband and 3.5 year old daughter have devoured them! I subbed 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce for 1/4 cup oil, and 1.5 cups whole wheat flour for part of the white flour. It brings the cals down to 136, fat to .5 g, and fiber up to 2 g.
Great muffins. I made it for the grownups attending a kids' party but a lot of the kids liked them too! I made 24 small muffins from this recipe. I will definately make again.
These muffins are a family favorite. I make them all year. Love them.
Delicious!!! I did add more spices- ground cloves, ground ginger, fresh nutmeg and extra cinnamon. This recipe is definitely a keeper.
I used 1/2 whole wheat flour, greek yogurt instead of cream cheese, and applesauce instead of oil. It needed a little more applesauce and I think more pumpkin, but overall an excellent recipe!
Delish. Based on what other reviewers had said I added a teaspoon of Trafer Joes Pumkin Pie spice, and used greek yogurt instead of sour cream. Keep in mind these are muffins not cupcakes, so the sweetness, flavor was just right for me.
This is a great pumpkin muffin recipe. Next time I'll add some nuts into the batter to make into a healthier breakfast muffin. Instead of sour cream I used low-fat vanilla yogurt which I'm sure dropped the calorie count, and added some ground flaxseed (about 1/4 c as I doubled the recipe). I ended up making 24 muffins and 2 very small loafs. I added more cinnamon which I can still taste in my mouth as I write this review, but cinnamon is a very healthy spice so I am pleased. I will def. make this recipe again, as it is a good recipe as I can use up the rest of the pumpkin after making Frosted Pumpkin Cake from the Nov 09 mag (I always buy the 29oz can, now I can easily use up the leftovers with this recipe and freeze for whenever)!
Well, I didn't have sour cream so I made one substitute with nonfat yogurt. Still, they turned out nice. One thing I like is that they are not too sweet. Kids liked them too and that's a huge plus.
These were great. My husband has had 4 of them already and was surprised when I told them they were light. Mine were a little lighter than the recipe because I used pumpkin butter in place of most of the oil (I only had 3 tbsp of pumpkin butter so I still used 1 tbsp of oil) and also it made 19 muffins for me. They were moist and delish! I might add some other pumpkin pie spices next time to make them "spicier".
This is a great and easy muffin recipe! The muffins are really moist with a lot of flavor! Definitely a fall favorite!
These were delicious but I believe mine ended up being not as low-cal as I made only 12 instead of the 18 (I don't know why they created a muffin recipe for 18). At any rate, I followed exactly except I too added 2 tsp of pumpkin pie spice and an additional tsp of cinnamon. If you make the batch with only 12 as I did, you need to bake longer (appx 32 mins). Other than that, incredible! The topping really made these great. Much more moist the next day too. :)
