Tried this to take advantage of some maple cheddar - quite good, surprisingly light. Of course I made some changes so not really the same. Used half and half oat and wheat bran and subbed one cup whole wheat for white flour. Also added a cup of chopped apples. Just needed a little spice but not sure what...

These are delicious savory muffins that can go with breakfast, lunch, or dinner, depending on your menu. I made as directed and wouldn't change a thing. Thanks, Cookiedog! Made for Vegetarian Recipe Swap.
