Hi Sheila, I’ve never tried it as muffins so can’t say for sure but I think you’d be fine. However I can’t speak from experience. Enjoy!

Hi Wilf, Glad everything worked out great for you! Yes, adding some thyme, onion powder, oregano or your own seasoning could be a great idea.. Thanks for sharing some ideas.
