Yummy Whole Wheat Muffins (Really!)

When you think of whole wheat muffins, they are usually super dense and not very tasty. So when I came across this recipe from Mark Bittman, I had to try it out (esp since the kiddo loves muffins/cucpakes). The result, yummy! Moist and not dense. Give it a try with your favorite fruit or veggie.
