“Use white flour if you prefer, but I think the wheat gives it great texture! Tweak the spices to your liking...I use 1 Tbs each because I like the spicier holiday flavour. Add allspice and/or other holiday spices... I've also used vanilla yogurt and it adds a soft variation more for a dessert type muffin. Also try topping with cream cheese icing (check my recipe I posted!). Sometimes I even add a little cinnamon, ginger, etc or a mix of holiday spices to the icing. Use smaller muffin pans to make a nice snack for your meal or a quick breakfast. You can even freeze them! Try making a loaf cake as well.”
