    These are great! My husband and daughter love them. I used dulce de leche topping (Hershey's) syrup. Definitely a keeper.

    Great muffins, perfect for a fall snack or meal! I love the healthiness of the recipe and my kids didn't even guess that this was one of Mom's experiements to get them to eat better. I used 1/3 cup Splenda brown sugar blend rather than 1/2 cup regular. No food processer here, so I ground the dry ingredients in my blender..worked well. I ended up with 6 regular sized and 3 jumbo muffins. Thanks for the healthy version! MERP'd for Fall PAC '08.
