“These are healthy, filling, have a variety of flavors...I just can't say enough about them. With a cup of coffee or orange juice, they are my perfect quick breakfast or snack. This recipe is from a newspaper that's a couple decades old, a friend (Thanks Mary!) photocopied it for me when I was at her house raving about the muffin she gave me to eat. I hope you love them as much as I do. Also, I changed the flour from all white flour to part white flour, part wheat flour, to make it healthier. The original recipe calls for 2 1/4 cups white flour.”
