It's hard not to be addicted to these cheese muffins. They were so good, used smoked cheddar and mozzarella cheese with a bit picked jalapeños.

You couldn't tell it's made with 100% whole wheat flour, the muffins was puffed and very fluffy. The roasted bell pepper and scallions not only gave the muffins some bright colour, but also added some yummy bites.

They are great for breakfast or snack.

how is it possible that this "healthier" version is about 400 calories more than the other version?is this accurate?rzb

Just realized that I forgot to change the serving size. I just changed the serving size to 12, which means each muffin has 230 calories. This sounds much lower calories than 400. Thanks for the comment, and happy cooking :)
