Best "To Go" muffin ever!!! Started looking for this recipe after my grown sons requested the muffin Nana used to make...This recipe is exactly as I remember -sweet, warm and hot! I added Chia needs to my batch, to kick up the "healthy" rating. Supposedly it keeps for 6 weeks in the fridge, but we can't prove that. We seem to polish a recipe off within 2weeks!
