Very rich and moist, and flavorful! I used Splenda for half of the sugar (I leave a little real sugar in for texture and browning when baking breads) This is better than most low fat zuke breads I have tried. The amount of cinnamon was just right for a subtle spiciness. Made for Spring 2009 PAC.

Yummy! I used all WW flour with great results. Also added the extra tbs of cocoa and reduced sugar to 2/3 cup. I didn't have enough applesauce and subbed the balance with vanilla yogurt. I got 15 good-sized muffins plus a dozen minis. A delicious treat for my kids lunchbox and I love them too!

WOW. This was really good!! I followed the lead and subbed ww flour and added more cocoa, and I also added about 1/4 c. flaxseed. I wasn't sure how fast we would be able to eat a loaf of bread so I made muffins, planning on freezing some, but I think they will get eaten pretty quickly. :) I got 18 muffins, but some were a little small... I'll probably try to just make 12 next time. (I baked them at 425 for 18 min.) Oh, I also cut back the sugar to 1/2 c. and they were still sweet enough. Thanks for posting this yummy recipe!! LATER: I forgot to mention that my oven isn't very hot, so if you try the muffins, they may not to cook so hot or for so long... Also, I used a Raspberry-Applesauce from Trader Joe's that added really good flavor. I just made these again for my daughter's birthday instead of Birthday cake and everyone loved them and didn't even complain that they weren't fatty or frosted. :)
