This recipe is our go-to muffins. Because you can add in any fruit or filling to the recipe.
But here is my best tip for this recipe. Whatever you add in, make sure it is something moist. Blueberries work good, banana nut is another good option. Even lemon or apple pie filling are good options.
If you just add in nuts or dried fruit with applesauce, your muffins will be hard and dry.
When they first some out of the oven, they are going to be warm and soft, but as they cool, they become hard.
But, if your muffins do become hard, heat them up a little, add some cream cheese and it’s quite good!
So, let’s get into the recipe!
