    Okay, jmatt! Made these for the Recipe Swap, and let me first and foremost say, they tasted fantastic! They taste like a quick bread, yet the texture is so much a muffin, who knew. ;) The ONLY problem I had was most certainly operator error...they caved in....I think my nuts were too heavy! ;) Doesn't change my rating, but does mean my photo isn't the quality I'm used, I'll post it cus it's the first, but PLEASE replace it as soon as another comes in, and we'll move it down to 'step by step'. :) I WILL be makin' these again...they are my kinda breakfast.

    Love pistachios - this is a great way to incorporate them into the diet! These sound delish - will make a batch next time I have pistachios in the pantry (soon, I hope!)...Krum
