Moist and Low Fat Carrot-Raisin-Apple-Muffins

I got this recipe from this summer and have been making it constantly ever since. I have adapted it slightly by omitting the nuts and using skim milk instead of buttermilk. I make it with applesauce but you can substitute it for canola oil quite nicely.

Ingredients Nutrition

They are delicious. I used only all-purpose flour. I used Splenda instead of sugar. I used about 4 little apples. A little bit less raisins and walnuts. I had to cook the muffins for about 40-45 minutes.
