These are a great time-saver and wonderful to have tucked in the fridge. And the flavor and texture are great, too! I always add a little cinnamon and nutmeg to these. Thanks for posting this very useful and yummy recipe, Ann

Yummy! I'm so sorry I haven't reviewed this recipe before now! I have been making these muffins since Nov. 08! I've made them many different ways. The original way is great...but it's also a great basic recipe that you can change up with additional ingred. according to what your own family likes (bananas, for instant and extra spices). I also use 1/2 white whole wheat flour. I mix these according to directions, but then I bake them all and freeze. Then I can take whatever I need out for the week (keep in fridge) and nuke them for about 15 sec (for one, depending on your microwave power) and they are a great quick breakfast. Thanks so much for this great recipe. I will actually be making them again today!
