    They don't look appetizing to me, BUT, they do taste really good! A little grainy, but I guess that's the rye flour. Maybe mix another type of flour in - half white/half rye - dunno. Maybe I'll try that out for the heck of it.

    I love how these are so easy to make! I've made them 3 times already. I substituted the oil for unsweetened applesauce and this last batch I added a couple slices of unsweetened pineapple and used the juice instead of the water. Oh so good!

    The rye gives these a unique texture, but they taste delicious!! I love that they are lower in calories too and that they still taste really good. The raisins add a nice flavor. Good. Breakfast. Muffin.

    This is a great recipe for people with food allergies. But even those that don't have food allergies will like these. I like these because they can eadily be made with items out of the pantry. I also add a little nutmeg to spice them up a little.
