This recipe is very adaptable. You can make these muffins with what you have on hand and to fit any occasion. Great for using little bits of this and that.

Very nice and adaptable. I used 1 cup whole wheat and 1 cup all purpose flour. I cut down the granulated sugar to 1/2 cup but still added a little brown sugar... the result was plenty sweet. I added dried papaya, macadamias and also added a chopped banana (almost added coconut too). I also had to add a few TBSPs of milk to get the right consistency. 20 minutes was too much baking time... 17 - 18 minutes is plenty... or maybe baking at 350 would suffice. Overall, we enjoyed the result and I will make these again.
