Fantastic muffins! From a newspaper last fall. I think this should be attributed to the Associated Press. The recipe says you can add 1 cup of raspberries, blueberries or blackberries but I've never tried it.

Great muffins. Easy, healthy and delicious. Perfect for a quick, filling nutritous breakfast. I used a 1/2 all-purpose-1/2 whole wheat flour blend, fat-free half and half instead of soy milk, fresh-squeezed OJ and sliced rather than slivered almonds. I omitted the topping. Thanks for a great healthy recipe that even the kids liked.
