Weight Watcher's Applesauce Spice Muffins (Points Plus-2 Pts)

This recipe is a variation of the 1 pt Banana Bread recipe, which ends up being 2 pts with the new points system. I jazzed it up with spices and used applesauce, though just like the other recipe you can vary the ingredients.

I follow the directions precisely, just as written. The batter on this muffin was VERY stiff, almost like a bread dough, so I had to add a 1/4 cup of club soda. Even with doing this I only got to fill the muffin tins half full and only got 11 muffins. If I tried to spread the batter to make 12 muffins they would have looked like chubby pancakes and not muffins at all. The taste is very good but I think the ingredients may be missing something to make this a 12 serving muffin, and also not so stiff batter.

Pretty good for a low point muffin! Tastes a lot like these sweet potato muffins I used to make, only a lot healthier. I added a little extra spice since I love spice, and also a teaspoon of vanilla extract. Warm one up, spread a little smart balance or low-fat butter....mmm!! Perfect for a snack or breakfast! So quick and easy to make...thanks for posting this! Will experiment with these, maybe put some raisins or nuts in them sometime.
