I found these to be very tasty and moist. I must agree with Mikekey's review in that the final yield is off. I made 6 "double" size muffins and when I do that it always equals 12 standard size muffins if I want the smaller ones. There is no reason why you couldn't make 18 but I think that they would almost be mini muffins. I chose to add a but more Splenda as the applesauce was unsweetened about 1/4-1/3 cup of the Splenda and they came great. :D

Very moist and tasty muffin. Not too sweet. I used cherries, but cranberries would be good also. I only got 12 regular size muffins. There was no baking time included in the instructions, so I baked mine 20 minutes.
