I have made these incredible muffins so many times. You will not be disappointed...try them...you can cut back on the sugar if you like. I have used organic blueberries and sugar...much tastier!!!
wonderful , healthy and easy recipe. Thanks Red Jenny, I used all of her optional spices and I believe they helped this recipe to be 5 stars. I did use splenda.
