I found this recipe in a cookbook put out by the Maine Alzheimer's Association. My grandmother used to make muffins very similar to these and I was glad to find this.

These little muffins are very, very good. They were moist, and the texture was very pleasing. I used Granny Smith apples and dried cranberries. A nice combination of fruit for a perfect tart/sweet muffin. This recipe is definately a keeper. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
