This recipe not only looks great but it tastes as good as it looks if not better! Its good for you and not hard to make. I enjoyed serving this to my family and I will be making this again soon. The ingredients are simple and can keep them on hand for those times of unexpected baking. I really like this recipe!

I made up a batch of these muffins and they were really very good. They reminded me of another type of muffin that I make but, just a bit different. These are a really good muffin too!
