Thanks for responding
I decided that the specks are too big, I have had cornmeal with some darker specks in it, but this has too many and they are just a little bit bigger than the grains of cornmeal. I can't look closer but I'm sure they're not moving, lol. I did have cornmeal with bugs in it once. They were bigger than this and all dead, red colored things.
I just made a different kind of muffin and it will have to do.
