These are really moist on the inside with a slightly crunchy top. Great with a cup of herbal tea.

I "slimmed" this down even more using only wheat flour, applesauce and egg whites. They were great - especially as a quick breakfast. Healthier than box cereal, very tasty and filling.

Good recipe. Used what I had which was: whole wheat flour, a real egg, unsweetened vanilla almond milk and extra virgin coconut oil. I usually don't measure spices exactly because I don't mind an extra spicy kick of flavor. I also added a tsp of vanilla extract to the mix. I let the mixture sit for about 2 minutes to let it "rise" a bit. They turned out wonderful. Thanks for the recipe, will make again!

These are very good and I like how healthy they are. I used whole wheat flour and 1 real egg and non-fat milk. I also cut the brown sugar down to about 1/3 cup. I didn't bother with the sugar/cin on top but I'm sure it would be good. My only complaint is that 425 seems way to high. My muffins were dark on top and bottom. Still good , but next time I'd do maybe 375. Maybe this is because I made mini-muffins?
