If you like cookies with a crunch, you'll love these golden treats. Crushed peanut brittle adds an expected kick to the vanilla chips and brown sugar that flavor the dough. It's hard to believe something this easy to make tastes so terrific.

"We found this recipe when working on our son Cody's 4-H microwave cooking project," she notes. "We made different versions of this treat 'til Cody decided which one he and his dad liked best. He ended up receiving Reserve Grand Champion for his efforts."
These muffins make a great snack for kids (I have seven grandchildren and three great-grandkids) because they have so many healthy ingredients. I also turn to this recipe when I have to furnish muffins for church gatherings.
