Not sure if I have mentioned this but I love baking. I love cooking generally, but love baking. My cousin gave me this recipe the other day as she loves cooking with her 4yr old daughter Sophie. She is quite particular with the food she feeds her kids & especially likes these muffins due to there added goodness. I made them & yum is all I can say. Perfect with your mid morning coffee or cup of tea. Try them out & tell em what you think.
