My MIL first introduced me to these moist, delicious....and Healthy muffins. This recipe was originated in connection with breast cancer prevention. sometimes, I tweak the ingredients a bit, as some I did not have on hand. These are great to bring to family gatherings or breakfast meetings. I usually make a double recipe and freeze some for later.
