"Muffins don't come any better than these :) If you want to make regular muffins, you can leave out the fresh fruit and just decrease the sugar as stated in the recipe. No Kiddin', these are great! I love mine with a nice hot cup of cocoa... Yum!"

I made these with blueberries over the weekend and they were very much enjoyed by my dh and I. They are a hearty muffin, with a great texture. We loved the almost crunchy outside, snd soft and tender insides. Blueberries were a great addition. I am excited to try strawberries and raspberries too! Delicious!

Love the texture of these muffins. Hearty, fruit filled and just sweet enough. Perfect all the way around!

These muffins are large. Filled them with blueberries from the freezer and just rolled them in a little flour before adding them in. They were so moist and delicious!

Have made these several times since the weather cooled off. We love them for breakfast, but I have been known to have them for a midnight snack!

Made these using fresh strawberries and rhubarb and they were delicious! I upped the sugar just a little and they were just sweet enough, as rhubarb is so tart. Loved everything about these muffins!
