      Great texture! Had no trouble getting these to rise with a nice, rounded top...hooray! Love trying "extras", so included the almond extract, walnuts and about 1/3 cup coconut. I too substitute applesauce for butter or oil in a recipe and have never been disappointed. Used the turbinado sugar (like the raw, coarser sugar) instead of white...gave the batter a bit darker color, but wonderful taste. Thanks so much for a terrific recipe!

      An excellent recipe for using up leftover cranberries. So good that I would be inclined to go out and buy more cranberries just for this recipe! Replaced the margarine with applesauce at same ratio. Still nice and moist. Added almond extract to some and unsweetened coconut to some just to play around a bit. Turned out spectacularly.

      Very nice, slightly tart, yet sweet muffins. I made them twice following exactly the recipe - turned out great.
