This is a winner in my house! Just be careful not to over bake.. they dry out fast!
Can't count how many batches I've already made! Thanks!
Oh my.. these muffins are perfection! On the inside, they're light and fluffy, and the tops of them are a bit crunchy. They have just the right amount of sweetness. My mom and sister couldn't even think of words to describe how wonderful these muffins are, they just went "Mmmmmmnom!" I used 1 c. of whole wheat flour and 1/2 c. all purpose, so I added an extra 1/4 tsp. of baking soda. I got ten big muffins. Thanks for posting!
Very good muffins! Nice and moist.
