Ratings & Reviews

    These are ok. I really liked the batter better than the cooked muffins! ha ha But, really...there are no eggs in the batter so it is safe to eat! Once cooked they do have a slight rubbery texture but the flavor is good. I found that putting a little bit of margarine on the muffin (like a breakfast muffin) made them very good. I guess that takes away from the "low-fat" purpose but...oh well! :)
