Easy and Delicious!, Member maricat409

This recipe was very easy to make. I would recommend filling the muffin cups to almost the way full and you will use all of the batter. They were very full, but syill finished cooking after 20 minutes. I cooked mine a few more minutes because I wanted them to be a bit more golden colored. They were HUGE and only 172 calories they are a total win. And it really only took 20 minutes to make and clean, so this is a GREAT recipe!
