Recipe by Tomboy

I invented this recipe for my husband who is a (wannabe) body builder! They taste good and (hopefully) help to put on the muscle!

these were great! soft and moist and nutritious.. i didnt put the protein pwd in (didnt have) i threw in some hemp seeds and subbed one cup of the flour with a mix of wheat bran, wheat germ, and oats.. i also added some vanilla and did half cottage cheese and half yogurt.. i didnt have bran flakes so i used some all bran and it worked great. also instead of the margarine i but in some prune butter and a little oil.. and threw some walnuts into the whole thing!. seems like a lot of changes but its what i do to almost all recipes.. i baked mine for about 15 min and was afraid it was too long and they would be dry but they werent and everyone raved... (next time i will still bake them for a minute less).. thanks for a super healthy high protein and fiber muffin.. its just what i was looking for!!
