*For muffins with a lemon flavour substitute grated lemon zest for the orange zest.
*Add chopped dates or dried apples to the mixture.
*Instead of dried cherries, use dried cranberries or raisins.
*These muffins are a good source of fibre, making them a worthy part of the morning meal.
*Using olive oil in the mixture increases the amount of good monounsaturated fat. Most shop-bought muffins have far too much saturated fat.
