I have made a comment about this recipe in the past but I cannot tell you enough how great this is. I do add raisins for a little extra sweetness but the recipe is great with or without them. I have left the batter in the fridge for over a week and the muffins turned out as good if not better than those bake the same day as made. A truly great recipe.

These are great muffins since they're so healthy for you. They're not very sweet so I do add a bit of butter and honey which makes them very, very good. I'll make these a lot simply because they're so healthy and yet very enjoyable.
