    Dear Sandra,
    I baked the muffins over the weekend (used x sugar instead of maple syrup,) and they went over really well even with the kids. Thank you so much for the delicious, easy recipe!

      Because of your question about the afternoon: Maybe you would like to try the apple crumble: https://sandraludes.de/gesunder-apfel-crumble
