I made these yesterday and hot of the oven, they were delicious. But this morning they were a little dry. One thing I'm wondering is if the barley is supposed to be cooked. I didn't and it came out hard and very difficult to chew. Overall, they are a tasty, healthy muffin, but when I make them again, I will half the recipe so there won't be any leftovers. Also I will experiment with cooking the barley. Raisins would be good to add too.
