Another favorite muffin recipe at our house. This recipe makes two dozen regular size muffins or 4 dozen mini or "gem" sized muffins. They keep great in the freezer and are perfect for a nutritious, delicious snack or breakfast carb choice. You could add chopped nuts and/or raisins or chopped dates, but my bunch likes them "plain". When you bake them, your house will smell so good!
