Comments on Final Outcome:

I LOVED these. So soft and moist. You wouldn’t have been able to tell that they were guiltless dessert, free of junkie ingredients. I’ve stopped eating muffins from grocery stores or cafes since they usually aren’t too good for you, so I’m glad I found this recipe. I will definitely make again!
