  1. Wow!! These muffins looks delicious. I’ve been a member for about a month now and on all 3 devices I’ve been using (iPhone 5, iPad & desktop) I do not see a “add recipe to menu ” or anything. All I see is a print and pin button. I’ve been manually going over to Ziplist and looking up oamm specific recipes in their search to add them to my grocery list. So you have a YouTube video with help on this? Thank you.

  2. What do you mean when referring to butter #1 and butter#2? And is .33 cup the same as 1/3 cup?Can’t wait to try this recipe

    1. Hi Anna! Since there are two different butters listed, we use butter #1 and #2 to clarify so you aren’t confused which to use. And yes, .33 cups is 1/3 cup. There is a chart at the bottom that can help with some of the conversions as well. Enjoy!
