These muffins were wonderful and are so much healthier than most snacks we eat at our house! My son loved helping me make them. I doubled this recipe and used the topping from Strawberry Rhubarb Streusel Pie # 83789 on half of the muffins. It would be enough topping for all of them though. Next time I would mix up the streusel first and put it in the fridge until it's time to put it on top. I would also cut the apples before you start putting things in your mixer. If you're like me and go down the list of ingredients, that holds up the processes in the end. Once you add the baking powder it reacts pretty quick, so I would probably add that last next time.
For everything this recipe IS, it earns 5-stars! It IS low-fat and it IS a lower-calorie muffin! It IS a way to increase fiber intake and get a little more protein, too, all while enjoying that "carb fix" that is so necessary for me!! A timely post as I work through the final stage of my weight-loss goal! THANK YOU!
Although the flavor of these muffins is nice, overall this recipe is a dud. It took twice as long to bake them as the recipe says and even then, the inside of the muffin never cooks. It is very mushy and raw while the outside was getting too brown. They aren't very appealing to the eye either as the batter never molds to the shape of the muffin paper or rises but stays in the form of how you spoon it...a misshapen blob. They also stick to the muffin paper so you lose the whole bottom part of the muffin. I urge you to find a better recipe!
