Great Muffins

Ruth R.--Try using rice flour instead of the wheat flours, or maybe kamut in place of the whole wheat. These don't have gluten.

healthy is yummy

I was surprised that these muffins tasted so good for being "healthy". They were easy and taste great warmed in the microwave the next day.I will make them again soon.

Loved these!

My husband wanted some apple muffins to take on a trip and I decided to give these a shot. They were absolutely wonderful! I was afraid they would be on the dry side, what with the wheat flour, but we were both very pleasantly surprised.

Do you think that a recipe entitled "Apple-Cranberry Wheat Muffins" might have the ingredients APPLES and CRANBERRIES listed??????? Editor Note: This recipe does contain both apples and cranberries.
