    VeggieVal's Note:

    Savory muffins to serve with soups, a big salad or on their own for healthy snacking. This recipe was in Pam Anderson's CookSmart column in the USA Weekend paper, Feb 20, 2009. If you want something delectable and nourishing and don't mind messing up four or more different bowls, this recipe is a lucious hit every time. I replace the sugar with agave or leave it out sometimes. These freeze fine, if well-packaged, to add quick pizzazz to a dinner for many or just take one out to reheat solo. I believe this is from her newest (fifth) cookbook called "The Perfect Recipe for Losing Weight and Eating Great". Thank you, Pam!
