      Thanks for posting a great recipe! I'm sure this deserves 5 stars but because I made some alterations, I'm giving it a very solid 4 stars. I'm adding the changes to my review so I can remember them for next time ;-) I reduced the brown sugar and added a can of well drained crushed pineapple, I used Bob's gluten-free wheat flour, egg beaters, increased the applesauce and reduced the oil. I made these in muffin tins in order to freeze them for a quick snack or breakfast. They turned out great! The whole family loved them. I frosted a few in honor of the adorable husband's birthday but left the rest naked. Thanks again for posting this one!
      UPDATE: I've made these a few times now and this last time I exchanged ground milled flaxseed for the eggs. I used 1/3 cup of brown sugar and 1 cup of applesauce this time. I also reduced the flour to 1 1/2 cups and added some whey protein. They turned out just perfectly moist and tasty.
