These muffins are delicious just as they are. If you prefer a sweeter muffin, add more sugar or try using brown sugar. Here are a few more ideas for you to try:

More ideas:
Try using raspberries or any other fresh or frozen berries
Add in one grated apple for a more moist muffin
Sprinkle 1/2 cup rolled oats on top of the muffins before you bake
Sprinkle 1/4 cup brown sugar on top of he muffins before you bake
Add in 1/2 white choc bits for something special
Serve with a dollop of cream cheese icing or dust with icing sugar just before serving

These can also be made into patty sized muffins or even mini muffins. You will need to bake these for less time, about 18 mins or so.
