A few days ago I wanted to try some cheese muffins and found this recipe on the Pioneer Woman's blog under the original title: Fig's Cheese Muffins.

They are a nice change of pace. With the amount of cheese in the recipe, I didn't know what to expect but was pleasantly surprised at how light they are.

Can't vouch for the calories, just the taste.
