  1. Yummy lower fat muffins! Mild flavor with a hint of maple. Not overly sweet, just nice and healthy. I always eat my muffins on the go, but these would be nice with apple butter, too. Thanks for sharing your recipe!
  2. We're trying to use more whole wheat and natural sugars in our diet. So DH and I gave this one a try. We used pure maple syrup in the place of honey and golden raisins. The muffins baked up nicely and were mild in flavor.


Culinary school drop-out (happy cook)! My name is Meg, as my public name might suggest, and I'm 20 years old. So far, I've been a cook my whole life, at home and in restaurants, working as a Baker's Assistant right now. I was raised in a commercial bakery and general store as well run by my aunt and mom. I'm engaged to an amazing guy, who I met in high school in a restaurant prep course. We both went to college for Culinary Arts/Chef Training, but neither found the program very satisfying. As it stands, we're both happiest cooking, so long as it's not in a kitchen lab. I've been nosing around 'Zaar since I was about 13 or 14, and it's been a huge source of learning for me, back when I didn't even know what a roux was, haha. If you've seen me around before, I'm the former SugarMegnolia. Also, I write a blog, however, I'm not always the best at keeping up with it, but try to put in my best effort whenever I get around to writing. The link is here, please give it a quick look-see!
