These were pretty good, and satisfied my sisters who were a bit weary when they saw i was making low-fat muffins. Honestly, you wouldn't know they were low in fat, which is perfect for me! A sweet treat without the guilt... My 12 muffins were, like you said, small, and after only 17 minutes, they were starting to born. Might I suggest lowering the cooking temp or reducing the time a bit?
