    Great recipe except too much applesauce! It becomes far too moist so I would advise halfing it and only putting in 4 table spoons but other than that, fantastic! Great flavour yet so healthy!  -  05 Dec 2014


    These are great. For those who are interested, I calculated the calorie count: 1 muffin = 100 calories, 0.7 g fat, 23.1 g carbs, 4.2 g fiber, 3.6 g protein.  -  06 Jan 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Great recipe- great muffins! I modified mine a little- instead of the applesauce, I used 1 large mashed banana, and instead of the brown sugar, I used 1/4 cup honey. Also, I used 1 cup w.w. flour and no white flour. They turned out great, not too sweet but definitely sweet enough. I also calculated a nutrition fact chart for my version..
