These muffins are delightfully spicy. I made a couple of changes. I used buckwehat flour instead of flour, fiberex (apple fiber) instead of oat bran, honey instead of sugar. I also added about a tablespoon of oil because it's easier to get the honey out of the measuring cup that way. They taste a bit like soda, so I think I will reduce the amount of baking powder or baking soda next time.

  2. Grease or line muffin tins with paper liners.

  6. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Once mixtures are combined, stir in walnuts.
