I love a hearty muffin. They're filling and give you lots of energy which is something I've needed these past couple of weeks. Having lots of fun chasing my walking 13 month old and also meeting the needs of my 2 week old. These muffins are a great grabber. The only difference in the recipe I changed was using whole wheat flour and Splenda. I also used chopped up walnuts instead of pecans. It's one of those recipes you can have fun with!
