I got this out of Muffins & Quick Breads booklet. I changed the flour to whole wheat and split the sugar with Splenda. I also used home made cinnamon applesauce. They are so good! I have made 5 batches so far.

These are such rich-tasting muffins, you would never guess they are low-fat. The only change I made was to add some pecans. Thanks for posting this one!

First of all, once I made my own adjustments, it was a fabulous recipe. But I didn't know which measurment was baking powder and which was baking soda, so I used 1 1/2 teaspoons of each. I also added 1/4 cup ground flax, 1/4 cup oat bran, and about a cup of chopped walnuts. I then added a little more eggbeaters (which I use when a recipe calls for egg whites) and oil to keep it moist. So it made 18 muffins. It is a FABULOUS-tasting muffin. Healthy, too!!
