you don't even know they are a healthy alternative This was delicious I didnt use nuts or raisins so put a little more carrot and crushed pineapple. even hubby enjoyed it will definitely make again no doubt!! Pros: yum and filling Cons: takes a little time to make
A bit fussy to make but not overly so and very well received by my family. Did cut sugar in half (plenty of sweet with pineapple and raisins) and substituted allspice (only 1 tsp) for cinnamon as a couple of family members dislike strong spice taste especially cinnamon. Will definitely make again.
Although I greased the muffin tins well the muffins stuck to the bottom of the pan and totally fell apart when I tried to get them out. They do taste good however I would cut the sugar in half. I won't make them again.
I used applesauce instead of oil in recipe and it turned out fine. It reduced the fat content. Still I think the sugar could be cut down and I will do this next time. My husband loves sticky buns and said these just as good. That is a wonderful comment from someone I have to force to eat healthly
Scrumptious!! Just made these with my five year old and they are delicious!! Lots of ingredients but well worth it. Will make a great grab and go breakfast as we rush off to school. We swapped out the raisins and nuts in the batter for dried cherries and diced dried apricots because that's what my son loves and they are a perfect combination of sweet tart and hearty. Pros: hearty flavorful
A Tasty Tropical Twist! I'm delighted to have found a truly different muffin that tastes like summer but sticks to your ribs! I made the recipe exactly as written and know I'll be making these often. One tip: I used butter-flavored spray to coat the muffin tins and just that touch of buttery flavor really made the brown sugar/pineapple/walnut topping sing! Pros: Hearty Healthy Substantial enough to satisfy between meals Cons: None
Great flavor but my got stuck! I thought I could get away with using muffin papers instead of spraying my muffin pan. Big mistake! My muffins stuck in the worst way! So I'm forced to scrape the insides of my muffin papers. So follow the recipe! Other than that the flavor was really good. But because of the large number of ingredients it wasn't easy! For that reason I probably won't make them again. But who can argue with the taste of brown sugar cinnamon pecans etc. Definitely satisfies the taste for sweets. Pros: Tasted sinfully good Cons: Lot of work; too many ingredients for me
Moist and yummy These are delicious muffins. The batter was the right consistency. But I used shredded carrots instead of grated carrots. So they didn't break down into the batter well. I should've cut the b. sugar in half due to the sweetness of the raisins and pineapples. Pros: Fruit and veggie and whole wheat equals fiber Cons: Way too sweet for my taste
Moist and yummy Muffins were chunky and substantial. I added shredded carrots; I should have put it in the food processor to break it down. Should have cut the sugar in half due to the sweetness of the pineapples. Pros: easy to make fruits veggie and nuts equals fiber Cons: Too sweet for my taste all purpose flour
These muffins are a hit! A healthy recipe that tastes great. They also keep well in the refrigerator and can be reheated in a toaster oven or microwave (on medium-low power). This recipe has become a standard for when I have house guests. They love the unique "upside-down" appearance. Tastes almost like dessert!
I love how meaty these muffins are. I make double batches and freeze and they're a perfect breakfast with milk or snack for later in the day. Keeps hunger at bay and tastes great at the same time. I guy the pinapple in 20 oz size (vs 8 and 10) to save money on a double batch.
Really Good I really enjoyed these muffins. They didn't blow my socks off with their awesomeness but they're good. I've added them to my rotation of grab-and-go breakfasts because they really do fill me up and keep me going. That's what I like best about them Pros: moist tasty healthy hearty easy to modify bake beautifully
