  6. What a great flavor combination! They look so moist!

  7. These muffins must smell amazing when they are baking, Linda! What a lovely way to use up leftover fruit and veggies, and oh my goodness they look good. Thank you so much for sharing them with us at the Hearth and Soul Link party. I've featured them at the party this week. Hope to 'see' you there. Have a lovely week!

    1. the recipe was for a bread which is to much for us. I don't like making a loaf because I'm the only one that eats it. Gabe won't eat anything "healthy' lol! The Texas size muffins work. I can eat 1/2 for breakfast and then break it up to snack on later in the day.

      I'll see you at the party- thanks for the feature.
