These muffins come from the Parish House Inn Bed and Breakfast. They are moist and freeze well! Kids really enjoyed the butterscotch flavor.

Great flavor, love the texture - I also used the quick oats as per notes and it turned out great. They were easy but really different and special. Quite sweet and rich (but I love that as it means I don't feel the need to add butter or jam or anything extra).
