"These are one of my kids' favorite muffins. I even decrease the sugar a little and they still turn out delicious. I make the whole batch and they eat these instead of cookies for snacks. They are much healthier and filling than a cookie too!"

"I am 43 years old and this is the same recipe that my mom and my grandma has made since I was a little girl. I still remember the big tupperware bowl in the refrigerator with the mix just waiting to be pulled out every morning to make hot fresh muffins for us each morning. I LOVE this recipe, but instead of the additional raisins, I use pitted dates, and I also add chopped pecans (because that is what my mom did). My kids LOVE these muffins, and they taste better after the mix has been in the fridge for a few days."
