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.

Really good! Used whole wheat pastry flour & since I don't like raisins, I upped the apples to 1 1/2 cups. I also replaced the oil with more applesauce, used 1 tsp cinn & added some Splenda to the batter. I don't do toppings very often so a note to the first timer: sprinkle the topping in a small amount in the center of the muffin! The topping "spread" as it bakes. I was too generous with the topping & it leaked all over. It added a nice additional sweetness to the muffin. Thanks!

Excellent muffins - moist & delicious! I left most of the skin on my Pink Lady apples to increase the fibre and I soaked golden raisins in coconut rum for an hour, draining well before adding to the mix. Thanx Barb!

Oh Barb, these were good. I ate one warm last night after I made them and brought two to work to have with my tea this morning. They are moist and delicious. I am trying to cut the carbs and fat so used egg sub and skipped the topping. Thanks for a great muffin recipe.

So many good muffin recipes and this is definatly one of them! I used applesauce for the oil and omited the rasins (because I'm trying to cut calories) and they were fantastic. Will most definatly make these again and again.

The best little muffins! I did use sugar twin brown sugar substitute and fat free margerine. Also, my house smelled wonderful. Thanks for posting this recipe Barb.

Way how to go! They are wonderful. I left the skin on the apple for extra fiber and chopped it in the food processor. Just because of personal taste I reduced the amount of raisins to 1/4 c. and plumped them in about 2 Tbs of hot water before adding to the recipe. My husband is going to love them!
