I am sharing a recipe for muffins that are easy to make, wholesome, and well-liked.
I am sitting on my couch watching the Today show and trying to get my act together. After the craziness of last week, it is nice to be watching the news and hearing good, uplifting stories. My house is a mess, we had a busy weekend, and I am having a hard time finding my motivation. I really want to stay in my pj’s and watch cooking shows all day. My best friend and her family were in town and we had so much fun. I love seeing her, but I get a little down when we have to say goodbye. We are living a lot closer than we have for many years, and I am so grateful for that, but it is still hard to see her and their beautiful babies go.
Today I am sharing a really easy and wholesome muffin recipe. I have made these a few times, and they have always been well-received. They remind me of baked oatmeal in muffin form. Hearty, healthy, and heavenly when served warm with a little butter. Feel free to add some blueberries or raspberries, I think that these would be great with some fruit baked inside. I have also used soy and almond milk in place of the milk and it has worked perfectly.
Happy Earth Day!

Fast Forward to 2021---I made these muffins a few weeks ago and emjoyed them. As much as I love maple syrup, I found it too sweet. I use, only, dark maple syrup when baking/cooking. I will make them, again, tomorrow a.m., & cut syrup to 1/2cup

These were delicious! The texture was nice, the maple flavor was lovely, and they made for a perfect breakfast. I used extra cinnamon and swapped out the flour for whole wheat white flour and wheat germ, and blogged it here.
