School Morning Muffins

I dropped my kid off for his first morning of before care at school, and he hardly noticed I was on my way out the door. The aide stopped me: was it ok if he had a snack? She rattled the box at me. Little Debby Oatmeal Cookie Sandwiches filled with some sort of marshmallow creme.

Erm. No. Really. Youโ€™re too kind.

So this evening, I made up a muffin. Want the recipe?
