First I wanted muffins, but as I started mixing, I changed my mind and wanted bars. I decided muffins and quick breads were close enough, and I baked it in a 9x9" pan instead of muffin cups. I also wanted to reduce the fat, so I put 2 Tbs margarine in 1/3 cup measure filled the rest of the way with rather dry homemade applesauce. Instead of 3/4 cup raisins, I used 1/4 cup chocolate chips, 1/4 cup peanut butter chips, and 1/4 cup raisins. Yummy!
