This was an easy enough recipe. There were quite a few ingredients, but my assistant was able to handle it all easily. She especially liked the stirring. We substituted almonds and regular raisins for the walnuts and golden raisins because that's what we had.
The scooping with the ice cream scoop and the sprinkling of the seeds was pretty fun as well. If you don't use an ice cream scoop for muffins or cupcakes, you should. It's very handy.
We actually got quite a few more muffins than the recipe called for. Here is a close-up of an unbaked muffin.
Here it is baked. Still working on my photography skills. White on white = a no no.
The muffins smelled great while they were baking. The rest of the family really enjoyed them. They did think that the sunflower seeds didn't add a whole lot. I did take a taste. While they weren't bad, I don't think I'll be eating them again.
Thanks to Kelly of Sounding My Barbaric Gulp for getting me to try something new. She'll also have the recipe on her site if you are interested. Next week: Clara of I Heart Food 4 Thought has chosen Chocolate Chocolate Cupcakes.
