I just put these together tonight.  Not sure if I am missing something, but I barely got 11 muffins out of the batch.  It said 17 servings.  Any ideas as to why?

I made these last night and they are AMAZING! I cannot stop eating them. I'm not even the world's biggest fan of cantaloupe, but these muffins are awesome!! I made half of the batch regularly, and then decided to add vegan chocolate chips to the second half (so delicious!)

 

2 things I'd recommend:

Use quick oats - I used regular Quaker oats and they didn't really cook all the way

Keep an eye on these! I set my timer to check on them after 18 minutes and they were already perfectly done. Next time I'll probably check after 16 or 17.

GREAT RECIPE!! STRONGLY RECOMMEND :)

This recipe is EXACTLY what I needed for my overripe CSA cantaloupe! So quick and easy, and all the ingredients on hand. I poured all of the batter into a loaf pan (28 min baking time) and cut it into 4 large slices to have for my breakfasts -- except the taste test nibble resulted in my promptly gobbling down the rest of the slice, topped with lots of Earth balance, so now I have only 3 slices left. //swoon! This is a recipe I will make again and again (it would even be a good jar gift, just layer the ingredients in a mason jar, label with instructions for adding cantaloupe puree and baking temp/time).

P. S. I turned the rest of the puree into a cocktail slushie with some orange liqueur and peach schnapps.  >:D

These were absolutely divine! I didn't have enough cantaloupe for 1 cup of puree, so I did a mixture of cantaloupe, apple sauce (homemade, using golden delicious apples, skin left on) and fresh figs. I also mashed the fruit by hand rather than using a food processor, as I like the texture this gives. I only used 1/4 cup of sugar and this was plenty sweet enough for my sweet-toothed husband and I. They were a great success, possibly some of the best muffins I've made. Thanks for posting this recipe!

These were awesome!  I never would have thought to use cantaloupes in muffins.  Because I am not a huge fan of cantaloupe, I pureed a small banana and some Strawberry Banana Vitasoy with it.  I also used half spelt/half unbleached white flour and demerrara sugar.  They are very fruity, but neither of the fruits overpower the other.  They kind of have a fruit punch flavor.  I definitely recommend these.

My picture is blurry, but these have a pretty color to them. They also have an interesting flavor, very good, but different. I cut back on the sugar as I usually do with Simple Muffins, and they were still great.
