Recipe by Simply Chris
These muffins are loaded with essential vitamins, minerals and antioxidents, plus heart friendly monounsaturated fat from the almonds and canola oil. These freeze well up to a month. Microwave frozen muffins at High for 15 seconds. We like these especially since the recipe calls for whole wheat flour and oatmeal. Adaped from Cooking Light

Delicious! I followed the recipe to the T. The only variation I made to the recipe was to use bakery-style muffin tins for a larger, friendlier-looking muffin. Moist, just the right white to wheat flour ratio!
