    WiGal's Note:

    For the Make It Healthier tag game, I lightened up MsSally's"Buttery Cinnamon Muffins, #277875", by using low fat yogurt, skim milk, eliminating the vegetable shortening, and adding apples. This would be good with peaches or apricots, too.

      Yummo, Ihalved the cinnamon though as we dont like it too much... a littke s fine though. I sliced the apples so they looked extra pretty, and finely diced the left over apple apple and added it to the second half of the muffin mixture. They turned out great :)

      I really loved the flavor of these muffins! All that cinnamony goodness. I had these little muffins in the oven already when I noticed an egg sitting on the counter....oops...I never added the egg. No wonder the batter was quite thick. These still baked up nicely without the egg, just maybe a little more dense, so it worked for me. I will be making these again... with the egg next time. :)
