    Tisme's Note:

    If you like fresh baked muffins in the morning, then this would be the perfect recipe for you. You can prepare the batter in your leisure and it can be kept in the refrigerator for up to one week and the muffins can then be cooked as you require them. Also these little beauties can be frozen for up to 2 months perfect for lunchboxes (just take them out in the morning and they will be defrosted by lunchtime) or if you like them warm, take them out of the freezer and pop them in the microwave for a short time and serve warm. This is a recipe from Barbara Northwoodread from New Idea.

      Taste great but seriously, 16 g of sugar? 64% of your daily allowance in one muffin? Not here. We're not super tight with sugar in this house but if there is this much sugar there needs to be a fiber balance. There isn't. Sorry, not for a healthy household.

      These make a lovely tasting & moist muffin which little Miss and toddler DS loved. Fantastic that you don't need to cook the whole mixture at once and a great use for leftover cereal that I often find lurking in the pantry. Thanks Tis! Have a feeling I've owed this one for a while....vaguely remember tagging it eons ago...sorry!

      Awesome!! These are just fab.. I made them in a Texas muffin tin and I made six yesterday and have saved the rest of the batter to make more tomorrow, I think just my looking at what is left I should get another 4 large muffins so that is really good.. My son has already devoured 3 and I was a little bit bad and have had 2 one yesterday fresh and one this morning which I just heated in the microwave for 30 seconds and it was still just as delicious, as when hot and fresh from the oven.. This is a really super simple recipe which turns out brilliant.. My muffins were so moist and full of flavour and like the reviewer before had said not overly sweet which we loved.. The addition of the chocolate chips and the apricots is just so delicious and moreish.. A fab recipe that will be enjoyed again and again by our family, Thanks Tisme.. BIG THUMBS UP!! :)
