Muffins can be tricky. Some people may hear the word “muffins” and think healthy cupcake, therefore most places that sell muffins cover them in chocolate, drench them with powdered sugar, fill them with cream cheese or other goodness deserving of a full-blown dessert, while others think of them as lumps of gluten, bran and mushy fruit. Which usually means one is left to choose between muffins drowning in sugar coatings, or visit the “healthy” muffin mongers who sell basically pastry rocks. Where’s the happy tasty medium?
