"These muffins we're fast, easy,and delicious! They come out perfectly-- very moist and not too dense. I added about 1cup of frozen blueberries to the batter which added to the flavor. I will definitely use this recipe again!"

"Such delicious muffins! I made a few changes to the recipe: I used 1 cup all purpose flour and 1/2 cup whole meal spelt flour. I cut the sugar down to half a cup and substituted with coconut sugar. My oil choice was coconut oil. I added a cup of frozen blueberries too. When in the muffin tray before baking I topped them with pepita seeds. So good, will make these again."
