Fruit and Nut Oatmeal Muffins

Not too sweet, not too big, just right for a morning boost. As much as I adore granola bars for breakfast, it’s nice to mix it up with some healthy-tasting muffins. Plus, making muffins at home is significantly cheaper than buying them from a coffee shop. Although I did find this bakery by the metro that sells great muffins for $1.50, but I digress. The point is that these muffins are tremendously good.
