Very good muffins that you'd never think were from a Diabetes cookbook. The best apple muffins I've tried to date taste wise. I like the raisins much better then apple muffins with nuts. For some reason I only got 10 out of this recipe, and they weren't very big either. They didn't rise very much. I used plain yogurt instead of applesauce which worked fine. I would however use a different streusel topping next time as this was almost like plain cinnamon/sugar. Thanks for a nice breakfast!

These muffins are delicious! I'm eager to make them again and will probably make a larger portion of streusel so that it will cover the entire top of the muffin and I may add coconut to the streusel to see how that would taste.

These were fantastic. I used splenda brown sugar, egg substitute and used more apple sauce instead of the oil. I soaked the raisins and used 1 cup of apple. Thank you for this awesome recipe Barb.
