So, my mom is a health freak. Actually, to be a bit more accurate, she is a fiber freak. You can pick up any food item and she can tell you the fiber content instantly, without even thinking about it. I modified this muffin recipe especially for her, so that each little bite is packed with fiber. I don't know how much yet, but I'm sure she'll let me know as soon as I email her this recipe!
