WOULD YOU LIKE US TO ASSIGN SOMEONE TO BUTTER YOUR MUFFIN?

FOOD POST TIME Y’ALL.  Mixing sweet and savory is kind of my jam, and while my usual breakfast is pretty modest (yogurt with some almonds, fruit and a protein bar, toast with peanut butter and honey, etc) I actually have a huge weakness for breakfast pastries and muffins and sweetbreads and so on.  These muffins — with no butter but full of omega-3’s from olive oil, and fiber from apples and whole wheat flour — let me pretend that there’s some sort of vague nutritional value in something so tasty.  These seriously are delicious — you’ll be amazed at how light and fluffy they are and at how well the flavor of the olive oil comes through.  They’re amazing right out of the oven spread with some fig jam or mascarpone cheese or apple butter, but keep pretty well wrapped in foil for a few days as well.
