This recipe was just what I was looking for! Something easy and nutritious (these are low fat and have a good amount of fiber) that actually tastes good. Well, I am no baker and this recipe was so easy. I just ate one of these muffins still warm from the oven and I have to say, these are pretty darn good! I had to use sweetened applesauce because it was what I had in my pantry, so I used a little less brown sugar to compensate (about 2 Tbsp less). I also substituted whole wheat flour for half of the all-purpose flour for some extra fiber (don't use all whole wheat flour - your muffins will be too dense). Other than that, I followed the recipe to a T. I think the next time I might try adding some flax seeds or chopped walnuts for some added protein and crunch (and healthy Omega-3s). I am going to freeze some of these so I have a quick and healthy breakfast or snack before a workout. Thank you so much for sharing!
Made these today and they turned up very good. Didn't have any pumpkin pie spice and only put 1 egg white in(think I just forgot to put the other one in) and it didn't seem to affect the taste at all. They were a little more dense than I expected but that may have been because I used whole wheat flour. Will definitely make again.. Thanks for an easy recipe with items I already had in my cabinet.
We enjoyed these, and I appreciate how healthy they are for me and the kids. I will definitely make them again. I rated them 4 stars out of 5 because the texture was quite different from a traditional muffin made with fat - it was a little chewy.
