Another sparkpeople.com favorite. I like sharing their recipes, they are all so good. This one is slightly altered, though.

YUMMY! Tasted great and I love the fact that it is healthy! It is always refreshing to find a healthy, low cal muffin! I think this would be great for my mom and friend who are both diabetic. I made an error when I added the dry ingredients (I added the sugar and cinnamon to the batter instead of using it as a topping) and the muffins tasted awesome. I had a cinnamon muffin instead. It's all good. I will definitely make these over and over again with other additional toppings/ingredients for some variety. Thanks for the recipe!
