Wonderful Fall muffins. I made 12 and that ask for a cup of sugar, I used a 1/2 cup of Splenda and that was right on the money. It also ask for 3/4 cup of oil, I used 1.4 cup of oil and a 1/2 cup of unsweetened applesauce. That cut back on the fat and was a grand addition to the muffin flavor. I used twice of amount of pecans just because I love them. I got a pic of the 10 remaining muffins after we sampled while I still could,lol. These will not be around long!
Yum! I made these as written, except I cut back on the sugar a bit, and I think I could've cut back more. The other change I made was with the pecans. I thought it might look nice to chop them finely, and sprinkle them on top with a little cinnamon and sugar. They are SO good. When I opened the oven to check them, it smelled like those toasted pecans and almonds you get at the fair. mmmmmmmm. As others have mentioned, they are somewhat crumbly, with a different texture than most muffins, so I think they work best with muffin papers, as opposed to just greasing the muffin tin. The paper holds them together nicely. Thanks for posting. Made for PRMR.
These are definitely a different kind of muffin. My husband said they were the best muffins he's ever had -- quite a compliment coming from him! These didn't rise, but they were so moist, yet crumbly, and rich, that didn't seem to matter. Made with Gala apples. These are serve at the B&B muffins! Thanks, Kim127!

Great muffin. I used to types of apple, Granny Smith and a Gala. Great taste and texture. I may try these again using walnuts. Thanks for a great recipe and congrats with the football pool win.
Yummy! I did half the recipe and reduced a little bit with the sugar. These muffins are so tasty. Thanks Kim :) Made for 123 hit wonders.
These got mixed reviews. I thought they were ok but my husband thought they were awesome. These are different...not a typical muffin texture. The batter looked more like cookie dough than batter...I was worried until they came out of the oven! I filled my muffin cups almost to the top and these didn't rise at all. I checked my baking soda and it's fine, so I guess these just don't rise that much. I will make these again for my husband. Thanks for posting!
