These are great! I use the little cupcake cases- very good quick snack for after workout, and they travel well. Seem to be better by day 2 even 3 ;)

This is a lovely recipe, muffins were very moist and tasty! Didn't rise much though. Bake in cup cake cases as they stick to the tins.

These smelled great! my husband doesnt like raisins (sultanas) so i doubled the apple. They arent quite finished in the oven yet, but i am smelling them cooking and think they will taste just as fine.
