    My husband is a very picky eater and I have tried so many things. This is one I have to make 2 times a week; he takes it in his lunch and all the guys at work send me donations because they love them too.

    Great muffins. I used white flour because I did not have any whole wheat at the time and they turned out just as well. Everyone in my family wants me to bake more.
