Recipe by Doing it Right

You won't believe your taste buds once you get a piece of this muffin in your mouth. These are so easy to make, and make a large size muffin. These can be frozen also. This recipe is courtesy of Joanna Lund. Each serving is only 186 calories as posted. I have also substituted applesauce for the vegetable oil, and I use egg substitute. In my oven it took closer to 25 minutes. Diabetic Exchanges per serving: 1 Starch, 1 Fruit and 1 Fat

Top Review by Blueberry

I've made these many times over the last several years and love them. I do make a few changes based on a review on another site where I first got this recipe. I reduce the splenda by 2 TBLS. Increase cocoa by 2TBLS. (This will add 40 calories.) I also add 1 teaspoon coconut extract and 1 tsp butter extract. These are wonderful and help me diet withought feeling deprived.
