How time has flown by and we are onto Christmas already!! Are you ready for it yet? I don't feel that I am!
I find these muffins a real easy treat to make. It's good to bring to last minute gatherings that you have been invited for this festive season. I love experimenting with olive oil and this recipe uses just that. It gave my kitchen a very festive feel when it is out from the oven.
The best thing about these? I really like the sprinkle of brown sugar and walnuts as a topping. It makes them just a tad more special.
Oh my, I still have so many treats that I want to make! Looks like these posts would have to be for after Christmas (or maybe a New Year treat?).
Nevertheless, I'm hoping that you are having a fantastic Christmas this year.
