Each Christmas, I make plates of goodies for the neighbors. I try to include a few items that aren't as sweet as traditional cookies and candies— these mini loaves really fit the bill!

"I was looking for a recipe that made a moist muffin with great flavour, and this was it! So good, especially fresh, and the almond really adds to the taste. My new favourite muffin! I may play with the basic recipe and add different flavours."
