Since I like to eat something quick to go with my first cup of coffee, early in the morning, I bake muffins on a regular basis (about every other morning). It's not unusual for me to be up at 6:00 a.m. and baking muffins! This Winter I've become hooked on making muffins often, especially with apples and walnuts or with banana and walnuts. We're fond of nuts in our muffins! I also don't want a lot of sugar and a cake-like muffin, I want a chewy muffin with crunch and lots of flavor.
