Muffins are a common breakfast or snack item around here. I like how they can be quick and easy to make. They are also easy to adapt to include variety of ingredients. This recipe is definitely a simple one. I like it more as a base and can be adapted with other spices, fruits, nuts or shredded vegetables.
