These were great. Very easy. I used gala apples so I reduced the sugar to 1/2 cup. Also used 1/2 cup egg substitute. I will be making these again. I made 6 texas muffins and 24 mini muffins. The taxas muffins cooked in 18 mins and the mini's in 10.

These are great. Moist and tasty. I used Splenda, except in the topping (Splenda doesn't work well for toppings.) A good muffin for diabetics with the Splenda. Thanks for posting!

Totally delightful muffins. I used all Splenda and just egg whites, all skim milk and got perfect muffins. They have a lovely crust and are light, tender and flavorful on the inside. The small amount of cheese is a very pleasant addition. I minced the apple quite small and I think next time I'll leave it in some what bigger chunks. I consider this a perfect muffins for a diabetic. By using the Splenda the only sugar they contain is what is in the apple and the fat is only 18%. I'm in Heaven!
