Poppyseed Berry Muffins with Pistachios

I love poppyseed muffins. Well, I just love all kinds of muffins. It's fun to play around with all kinds of ingredients to come up with lovely combinations of flavours.

I had a hankering for a muffin this afternoon as I didn't have time to eat lunch today, real hungry. Muffins only take anywhere from 15 to 20 minutes to bake. These are basically dump in the bowl and mix until just combined. It seemed a great way to satiate my growling tummy.

So I took all my favourite ingredients and flavours, sweet, slightly sour, nutty...you get the idea :) Voila! These berry wonderful muffins appeared!

These muffins are so yummy. I am very proud of my concoction and want to share it with you. Boy does it smell amazing in here. Hungry? Give these muffins a mix and go!
