Made these for a church planning brunch yesterday. They didn't last long. Have been asked for the recipe. Will be making again. Made for Football Pool 2012.
This recipe can also be found on the www.recipe4living.com website. Thanks for posting! These are truly yummy muffins!
This is the 2nd time I've tried to review this recipe! Not sure what's going on. Anyway LOVED these muffins. DH and 2 year old DD gobbled them up. I followed the recipe exactly, but did need to bake a couple minutes longer. I guess I filled my cups too full because I only got 16 muffins! This was the perfect tasty, fall inspired healthy treat I was looking for! The only thing I'll do differently next time is double or triple the batch! Thanks for posting!
