    Wow, can’t believe no one has commented since the last “Jodi/e” did. I searched for a whole wheat cheddar muffin recipe and decided this one looked best. I omitted the green onions due to a “greenophobia” in my youngest children and added a tsp of onion powder instead. I upped the cheese to 1 3/4 cup since there were no onions to fill it out. I also did not have buttermilk, so did 3/4 cup milk with 1/4 cup plain yogurt to give it a tangy flavor. I also used olive oil. These turned out awesome and were perfectly done at 12 minutes in my oven, which runs a bit hot. My kids love them. Thanks for a great recipe!
