I also made this recipe this weekend, using tropical dried fruit bits because that is what I had in the house. My DH and I both liked the texture of these muffins. I was concerned that the oatmeal and whole-wheat flour would make the muffins too dense, but that was not a problem, although I might not call them light and fluffy.
Gwendolyn, we froze the muffins (I got 21 or 22) and they've been fine.
For you to be here now, trillions of drifting atoms had somehow to assemble in an intricate and intriguingly obliging manner to create you. It's an arrangement so specialized and particular that it has never been tried before and will only exist this once.
