While most mothers don’t usually cook meals for 10 or more people, that is the regular setting at Tiffany Moen’s dinner table. Inspired by her eight children—five who were adopted from various countries—and a stressful time when her husband was unemployed, The Spices of My Life (BQB Publishing, 2012) is the story of Moen’s diverse family and her experience incorporating her children’s varied ethnic heritage to “stretch the dollars, feed the stomachs and rejuvenate family meals.” These Delicious and Moist High Fiber Muffins from Moen's kitchen are an easy way to get your daily intake of fiber. This excerpt is taken from the section “Breads.”

You can purchase this book from the Mother Earth Living store: The Spices of My Life.

Because our American diet is lacking in enough fiber, adding these muffins to your diet will make a huge difference. You will love how tasty and moist they are.
