Health Food muffins from the 1970s

jira | Jun 25, 200901:08 PM     8

Does anyone remember a commercially produced muffin sold in health food stores around 1972? I thought it was called Barbara's Incredible Fruit and Nut Muffin, but I can't find any references to that. I was actually in New Jersey at the time, but got the impression the muffins were nationally distributed.

The muffins were small by current standard, and quite dense. Unlike Morning Glory muffins, these did not have carrots, and also seemed to have a lot less oil than most muffins nowadays.
They were packaged in clear printed cellophane.

I'm interested in what the exact name was, and if anyone has a recipe that bears a resemblance to the muffins.
