These aren't bad, but I don't know if I'd call them "muffins." They don't rise at all, so they're shaped more like hockey pucks. The flavor vaguely reminds me a little of sausage. I'll probably make these again for sheer convenience. Easy protein on the go. About 20 minutes in the oven is what I needed to bake these.
I am training for a triathlon and eating a lot of high protein. These are great. Easy to make, wasn't sure how long to bake??? I went with 16 minutes and made 6 medium size muffins with this recipe. Good taste and I used pecans. Thanks!
