I'm vegetarian and I try to eat healthy. I love this recipe because the muffins turn out moist and delicious even though little sugar is used and wheat flour is used instead of all-purpose white.

Pretty good muffins! I do like the fact that these are a healthier version. But, I used real sugar instead of Splenda for a toxin-free version :)
