*I opted for making my own "low-fat buttermilk" by adding 1 tbsp. of lemon juice to 1 c. of 1% milk and allowed it to sit for 5 minutes before using it.
**If you like your muffins on the sweeter side, add an additional 1 tbsp. of brown sugar.
***You can use only whole-wheat flour, only all-purpose flour, or a 1/2 c. whole-wheat flour + 1/2 c. all-purpose flour. They taste great no matter what you use!
-Any fresh fruit is a great addition to these muffins! We've used raspberries, blueberries, apples and peaches. We also like adding in coconut and chopped pecans.
