B. was my helper today to make (okay, create) these muffins. We all were in the mood for muffins, but I didn't have any pureed vegetables, apple sauce, pear sauce, or bananas. I usually like to include one of those for moisture and flavor. So we rustled up some coconut milk instead. The batch turned out smaller. But these muffins are perfectly warm, delicious and spicy for our snacking today. Give them a try!
