These are easy to make, delicious and they make your house smell wonderful - a favorite at our house. They're high in fiber, low in fat and not too sweet. If desired, you could add raisins, currants and/or chopped nuts when you stir-in the dry ingredients. This recipe makes 2 dozen regular sized muffins or 4 dozen smaller "gem" sized muffins.
