The muffins are so moist and yummy, and virtually fat free. Due to the low fat content they only stay fresh for a day or two, the best way to keep them (if they last that long!) is in the freezer and defrost as neccessary. They are fantastic warm!

Wow! These are really the best ever muffins I have had without added oil or butter in it. I don't think they will survive long enough to dry out. I couldn't find canned apples, so I just peeled, seeded and chopped a large granny smith and cooked in some water, 1/4 tsp molasses and a few drops of lemon juice and let it cool before making the muffins. I will be making these again, they remind me of my grandma's banana bread but without all the fat. Thanks so much for sharing. :) Made for PAC Autumn '09.
