      I absolutely love cooking but in all honesty us skinny minnies need to see a calorie count before we can actually consider baking these muffins... A whole nutritional table woould be apprecited and would definitely separate you from your competition. Peace out A town.. dodo dodo dododo ooooooooooooo

      I made the Banana Spice muffins today. Though the texture isn't quite the same as a regular muffin, the taste is great. I used Chai tea, I think next time I'd also add a bit of cinnamon.
