Nutrition & Calorie Comments  

I used I Can't Believe It's Not Butter Light instead of margarine and 1/2 cup mini chocolate morsals instead of 1/4 cup regular chocolate chips (the recipe didn't seem to have enough chocolate chips). I also made 34 mini muffins with the recipe instead of 12 full sized muffins (only 57 calories). Submitted by:

I also left out the butter and added more applesauce, as well as cutting the sugar, but I used more chocolate chips! I made them into mini muffins for more portion control. Yummy, I hope they freeze well! Submitted by:

Excellent! I cut the sugar in half, used whole wheat flour and added 1/4 cup wheat germ. Kids love them. Husband is okay with the results. I also made them as small cookies and they held together just fine. Submitted by:

Excellent. I added ground flax seed and wheat germ for extra nutrition and texture. I also upped the chocolate chips, using the minature chips. I got 18 muffins. I guess my muffin pan is smaller. Submitted by:

Wonderful! My kids loved them as well.
I followed JDLANDER and subbed out margarine for applesauce. I also used Splenda instead of sugar. I figure this puts each muffin at about 100 calories.

I subbed out the margarine for the same amount of applesauce--making it 1/2 c. applesauce instead of 1/4 c. applesauce and 1/4 c. margarine. I also only used 1/4 c. sugar. They were wonderful and it put it to a little over 117 cal instead of 152! Submitted by:
