      This came out great! to make it extra healthy I substitute the flour for wheat flour instead and instead of vegetable oil I used lighter bake oil and butter replacement! So its less calories and less fat:-) I also used 6 packets of truvia instead of sugar to make it sweet! Thank you for this recipe:-)

      After the first day these muffins were incredibly dry. I couldn't force myself to eat them. If I try this recipe again, I will be making only enough to eat fresh, or else adding more fat.

      These muffins were very delicious! I made a few substitutions that helped make them extra moist and even less in calories!

      Use 3 tbsp of unsweetened applesauce instead of oil
      Use splenda instead of sugar
      Use Egg Creations instead of a real egg
