"These muffins are fabulous! I've been making them for years and I get asked for the recipe every time someone new tries them. The only problem now, is that I'm starting to have a hard time finding the quick bread mix."

"am looking for recipes that are homemade, not box made, plus canola oil should be substituted for coconut oil, much healthier."
