These were yummy - moist & delicious, plus healthy! I substituted all purpose flour for the spelt, decreased water to 1/2 cup, increased applesauce to 1 cup, increased cinnamon to 1/2 tsp and added 1/4 tsp nutmeg, using chopped apple as the fruit. My only problem was removing from the paper muffin cup liners I used - they tend to stick. Next time I won't use the liners.

Perfect muffins! I've never made a better muffin and I've tried lots of recipes. I made the recipe as written except for two small things. I added a teaspoon of guar gum to help hold the muffins together (since spelt tends to be fragile) and I substituted canola oil for the applesauce. These are some of the best muffins I've ever eaten, including bakery muffins and store-bought. This will definitely be my go-to recipe from now on. Thank you so much for sharing this!
