I made these muffins and they are excellent! Everyone loved them. The only modification I made was to use 1 apple processed through the blender in lieu of apple sauce, since I did not t have applesauce handy when I started. I also sprinkled some chopped walnuts on the top and a little turbinado sugar for sparkle. I'll be making ore than a dozen next time.
Wonderful! Used whole wheat pastry flour for the white flour, Splenda for the sugar & used applesauce for the oil. I also increased the cinn to 1 tsp. I left out the walnuts & raisins-I don't like them but I found that the apples were more enough flavor & quantity. Very yummy; thank you!
These were way more then good... I have been trying different recipes for muffins and this was by far the best. My daughter even asked for the recipe which she seldom does. I followed the directions exactly.. my apples must have been small because it took two for 1 1/2 cups. I loved having them in chunks instead of just applesauce. I filled the muffin tins to the top and there was just enough for 12. Great recipe.. thanks
