Recipe by Cynna
These are big moist muffins, filled with loads of fruit and spice. I always put a little extra spices than the recipe calls for. They are low-fat and yummy!

The hardest part of making these was chopping the apples...and cleaning up the dishes, which there were a lot of. The only changes I made were to use half whole wheat/half all purpose flours, slightly increase the cinnamon and nutmeg and add cloves, since I don't have allspice, slightly decrease the sugar, use one whole egg and two whites, and increase the applesauce a little since I only had a 6 oz container of yogurt. That sounds like a lot, but I promise it really isn't! Oh and I didn't peel the apples. I got 20 regular sized muffins out of this, and sprinkled sugar on the tops of one batch before baking, which I would definitely recommend. Idk if it's my oven or what, but I also had to decrease the temp to 350 because the outsides were getting done too quickly. Will probably make these again, if I am in the mood for all the chopping!
