I love making muffins and freezing them for a quick breakfast on busy work-week mornings. I will write the recipe as written. I used all whole wheat flour, substituted 1/8 cup Truvia brown sugar blend, and used butter instead of margarine.

I want to thank Harlean for her suggestion to put the silicone muffin cups on a cookie sheet. The cleanup was so much easier!
