Really good! Low fat but moist and tender, loved the chunks of apple. My eggs were huge, so I didn't add the extra egg white. Topped with turbinado sugar. Love those Cooking Light recipes! Thanks for sharing!

Directions See How It's Made
- Preheat oven to 400°.
- Place 12 paper muffin cup liners in muffin cups; set aside. Combine brown sugar and butter in a medium bowl; beat with a mixer at medium-high speed until light and fluffy (about 5 minutes). Add egg; beat 1 minute or until well blended. Beat in egg white until well blended. Add milk, applesauce, molasses, and vanilla extract; beat on low speed until well blended.
- Lightly spoon flour into a dry measuring cup; level with a knife. Combine flour, bran, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon in a large bowl; make a well in center of mixture. Add milk mixture to flour mixture, stirring just until moist. Gently stir in apples.
- Spoon batter evenly into prepared muffin cups. Sprinkle evenly with turbinado sugar, if desired. Bake at 400° for 18 minutes or until muffins spring back when touched lightly in center.
