I just baked these muffins today and let me tell you: they're amazing!My kids loved them! I didn't have fresh or frozen raspberries so I used raspberry jelly instead, just a dollop inside the batter, and they turned out beautiful!

Very good! I used 1/4 cup oil and 1/4 cup apple sauce and about 1/2 cup walnuts as I have so many of them. I was lazy and had a container of cinnamon sugar handy so I sprinkled that on them instead of streusel. They rose nicely. They were enjoyed by all.
