Print Friendly, PDF & Email

During the winter season I enjoy baking muffins on a Saturday morning.  This recipe is a favorite of mine.  I try to bake with healthier flours if possible.  I apologize for not having pictures that are step by step, but honestly it’s a very easy recipe to follow.

I hope you love these as much as we do!
