  1. What would be the amount if I choose to use sugar in a pinch?

  2. Your instructions say to "blend until oats are ground and mixture is smooth." What oats are you talking about? There aren't any oats listed in the ingredients. Is something missing from the ingredient list?

    1. Look carefully above the bulleted list of ingredients... 1 3/4 cup oats.

  5. I use the egg whites in the carton sometimes so that I don't waste eggs...any idea about how much I should measure for that in order to get the "3 egg whites"

  7. This recipe is the worst. The oats will not grind when combined with the other ingredients. The recipe should tell you to grind them first. The muffins also did not rise at all and were still liquid in the center after the full 15 minutes of baking.

    1. The oats ground up fine when I did them. My muffins didn't rise though either, but they had a soft and fluffy texture with the 15 of baking them. Try it again, they taste so good and are worth the effort!!

  9. Omg, they taste so awful..... you can absolutely tell they are made with fake sugar, and I used 50/50. I'm a pastry chef, and the recipe was followed exactly. It has that funky after taste from the fake sugar. If you're going to make them, make sure you spray the muffin liners, and grind the oats completely before you add the rest of your ingredients.

  11. To improve your health, try skipping the sweet tea and drink green leaf tea instead. Green tea has been shown to increase your metabolism and protect against various forms of cancer.

  12. I blended the oats before adding the extra ingredients. After blending in the extra ingredients the batter seemed runny so I added an extra 1/2 cup of blended oats.
    Cooked for 17 minutes.
    These were incredible definitely making them again :)

  13. I am going to make them, as soon as the weather cools down, and i ll let you know.

  14. I LOVE this recipe and I use it all the time. I've even done it in two 8X8 pans as cake. It does require that I bake it a lot longer than it calls for, and I use raw sugar, but I think it's delicious. It's one of my all time favorites.

  15. Ok, I have no intension to be rude here, but this recipe is a total fail. I tried it twice and both times I had to throw the entire thing away. They don't grow, in fact, once I removed them to throw in the extra chocolate chips, they sunk completely. The batter is very runny (even with an extra 1/2 cup of oats like it was suggested above), and the chocolate chips just sink to the bottom. We tried to eat it, even with all said, and it tasted bitter, with a bitter after-taste. I have to mention that I'm always trying on different recipes and this is the first one that was a major fail. I would NOT recommend this one to anybody. I lost money and time on this. Very disappointed.

  16. the batter was so runny and the cupcakes were terrable. I checked to see if I had made a mistake on the liquids but the receipe did say 1 cup of water. What a waste

  17. I made these following the recipe exactly and they turned out just fine. I think it's more of a cupcake then a muffin (hence the runny batter), but they were pretty good and I would make them again. Maybe next time I'll add some coconut or PB2

  18. I made them using honey instead of sugar substitute, and they turned out great! I mixed the batter with the electric hand mixer on high until most of the oats were chopped finely which gave it more of a muffin or whole grain texture. Will definitely make again!
