While I was home, I took advantage of my mother's credit card to buy ingredients to bake all kinds of scrumptious goodies.
This was definitely not to the displeasure of my mother though; in fact, she presented me with various recipes to make for her! So really, we all benefited right?
These muffins are a recipe that my mother found in one of her several "mom magazines." I believe it was Good Housekeeping.
Not only were they delicious, but also packed full of healthy and filling ingredients. Definitely a better choice than the package of mix with the long list of ingredients you can't pronounce.
Even my extremely picky brother thought they were tasty! And that is a feat, let me tell you.
These were described as a "One-Sentence Recipe" because they are so easy to make. They even make the perfect amount: one dozen!
