I like Vitalicious VitaMuffins because they're so healthy and tasty, but they're expensive. I searched online for recipe clones and found ONE! It isn't mine, but I thought a lot of people here would appreciate it being posted. It doesn't have quite as high a percentage of vitamins as the original, but I hope they taste just as good for so relatively few calories. This recipe also works if you decide to use a regular baking pan/sheet instead of a muffin pan. *************************************************************************************** INGREDIENT SUBSTITUTIONS AND TIPS: Instead of fat-free half-and-half cream, you can use the equivalent amount of nonfat evaporated milk. Instead of unsweetened applesauce, you could use the equivalent amount of plain nonfat yogurt. Instead of using 3 egg whites, you can substitute 2 eggs + 1 egg white, or for baked goods that brownie-like (very moist and even tastier), use the equivalent amount of regular egg substitute. RecipeZaar doesn't have the nutritional info for the clear fiber supplement, but Benefiber makes one that completely dissolves and is taste-free and 0 calories. You can make the recipe without it, but it is essential to making this a healthy recipe with 3-4g fiber per muffin. *************************************************************************************** Source: http://community.cookinglight.com/showthread.php?p=792843 . The main difference is that I exchanged sugar for Splenda. Enjoy!!
