Fantastic Muffins! Best ever... with a few tweaks: I added nutmeg and walnuts. I used half brown sugar, and half white. All whole wheat flour. For extra moistness, I used 3/4 cup milk and the other 1/4 cup low fat sour cream.

Wow, these were so good! I doubled the vanilla and cinnamon, and added a bit of nutmeg and they turned out delicious. They also had the perfect amount of sweetness. Love them. Thanks for this recipe! *Update - I've made these a bunch of times already, and most recently I added fresh raspberries instead of raisins. Absolutely delicious!!

This recipe is phenomenal, the only thing I did different is I used low fat greek yogurt instead of the applesauce...low fat, low sugar and I really like the moistness that using the greek yogurt brings. This is a great recipe! You have to shhhh, don't tell anyone it's healthy.
