really good muffin recipe and something a bit different too -LOVED THEM...i take the lazy girl approach with tofu cakes and throw a block whole into my processor along with a small apple to start the base of the batter going and add most of ingredients from there...i tossed some spice into this with the cocoa ((cinnamon and chili pepper))-mostly because i made it the same day that i was making some mexi. typy chili and bean things and it was all right there in front of me {{ :) }}...used carob chips (which worked really well with the earthy flavors) & absolutely adored the pine nuts (went heavenly with the cocoa)... thanks for a super good new treat!!! a winner and something original!! :)
