Mom was super excited to bake a new berry muffin recipe, but it only filled up 6 muffins. We knew dad would be displeased at the sparse amount, so she asked if I wanted to bake anything else. I had been craving carrot muffins so I found this recipe from Epicurious and tweaked it. These are pretty healthy and not too sweet.
When my younger brother Hans came back with dad, he looked at mom’s and my muffins, and commented, “Ugh, I was hoping for death by chocolate muffins…not death by fiber”
Ok, I wouldn’t have minded adding some cream cheese icing too if I had the time!
