"These delicious muffins are loaded with goodies," writes Elaine Kauffman of Tofield, Alberta. "I got the recipe from our pastor's wife. We like them for Sunday breakfast, but it's a good idea to double the recipe and keep some in the freezer for brown-bag lunches during the week."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 4, 2013

I agree that there certainly needs less oil, but the flavor is fantastic and they are super moist

Make this over. Take out 1 egg, 1/3 the sugar, half the oil and all the sunflower nuts and coconut for healthier choices and use bittersweet chips & fresh grind the wheat flour oe add wheat germ.
