Auntie Bea’s Seeded Wholemeal Muffins

Wholemeal seeded muffins recipe
One word:  Yummy!!!  In a super-healthy way!  Auntie Bea made these for us when we met her for dinner at the Villa a couple weeks back. I packed on a couple extra pounds after polishing these off over the course of a couple days – I’m super sensitive to carbs!  But at least they were super healthy high fiber carbs and I’m back on the straight and narrow again. I will only allow myself to have these infrequently, as good as they are, otherwise I WILL EAT them, and gain carb weight. So goooood.
