I love these! I have made them several times and have reduced the sugar a little bit each time to cut calories. The original recipe is delicious, but they still taste great with 1/4 c. of sugar.
These muffins are so good. I used quick oat. I wanted to reduce the sugar to 1/4 cup but my son filled the half cup and poured it in the bowl. But I'm sure 1/4 cup of sugar is enough. I used 1 egg instead of 2 egg whites. I always omit the salt in recipes because of DH's high blood pressure. I had only 2% milk. I used the lemon peel of 1 lemon. And used frozen blueberries. After 20 minutes, the muffins were cooked to perfection. Thanks Nickfo :) Made for PAC fall 2009.
I baked up this recipe a few weeks ago, its great. Only, I cut the sugar to 1/4 cup using Splenda granulated. Blueberries add a nice sweetness on their own and with a sprinkle of the topping on each muffin, they were more than sweet enough.
Terrific! Easy to make, wonderful flavor and texture -- and fits right in with my low-fat WW lifestyle. I thought these were downright scrumptious. I highly recommend making them with the lemon zest, though -- it really adds something wonderful. Next time I'll double the amount of lemon zest, just because it's so good .... thanks for posting this!
