They look yummilicious Jeena. I am definitely going to make them with a few minor changes for my own diet. Is wholemeal the same as whole wheat flour?
There is something for you on my blog.

I am from trivandrum, south india. I have made twice the wholemeal muffins using strawberry conserve. I used butter instead of margarine. It was superb like anything. Everybody loved it. Thankyou very much. Actually I have tried many muffin recipes. But all was a flop. But this one really wonderful.Thanks a lot dear chef.
