    These muffins are excellent and easy to make! My whole family loved them, and they never knew there was wheat germ in them! The texture is great… no one would ever know these are lowfat. Also they are a nice sized muffin, not skimpy. Please spray the muffin cups though, as the muffins tend to stick to the paper cups.
