Top Review by Nikoma

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!
