I just had to put another review in on these excellent muffins!Actually I decided to add a few more ingredients and it made these already great muffins even better.I added 1/3 cup toasted coconut,1/3 cup toasted almonds,1/4 cup milk and 1 cup of blueberries.I omitted the almonds from the top and put them into the batter instead.I added the milk to reduce the thickness of the batter a little.I guess I could have submitted this recipe as an awesome blueberry muffin but it's basically the same recipe with a few additions.If you have not tried these I highly recommend it! I just made these muffins yet again and went exactly by the recipe without adding anything.I added the milk in the previous batch because the batter was quite dry and I thought it would turn into a dry muffin.I was WRONG!!I'd like to try making these into squares,with a little icing sugar,water and almond extract mixture drizzled over it as a glaze.That would be awesome!
