A long time ago there was a bakery in our neighborhood that made the most yumful muffins on the planet. I loved their raisin bran muffins...so weird because I don't usually like raisins in baked things but these little gems were drenched in stickysyrupy sweetness, packed with raisins and were heavier than a wet sandbag. Dizzyspinninggood! I haven't yet found a recipe that equals them but I keep trying. And eating muffins. And trying some more. ;)
That's how I found Helen's raisin muffin recipe. Helen is a superactive socially motivated nutrition student from Toronto who thrives on travel, Tabata, yoga, running and healthy vegfriendly cooking. Her blog is a bright beautiful read...travel stories, fun and lovely photos, food facts and easy treats. I'm still on the hunt for the ultimate muffin, but I gotta love Helen's BRB Muffins because, admit it...blueberries make everything better! :)
Helen puts raisins in plenty of recipes...bars, cookies, fudge, salads, even her eggplant caponata stew! What kinds of foods do you raisin up? Who makes your favorite muffins? What's your favorite fitness workout? :)
