Very good! I added a good amount of ground flax and wheat germ. Also a couple tsps cinnamon and vanilla. I used about 1/2 cup raisen/craisen mixture and 1 cup chopped dried peaches because that's what I had. Very yummy and hearty. Thank you, Chef Glaucia.

This recipe yielded a very moist muffin, and tasted a lot like oatmeal! And what a plus! It's all good for you. I only made half the recipe and added mini-chocolate chips instead of the raisin and left out the pineapple (since I did not have any on hand). Easy and yummy, that's how I like it! Thanks for sharing yet, another healthy treat, Glaucia!
