    I substitute the oil in all my baking recipes for an equal amount of applesauce. It doesn't matter what kind of applesauce you use. I have tried several...plain, cinnamon, chunky, unsweetened. No one will ever know and the end results are always moister than if made with oil! Use honey, not Splenda! - 7/22/08

  • Recipe looks good. Not sure why people are saying would be healthier without this or that. Considering most muffins you'd buy are 250 calories plus, these are great. Soy is good for you. I'd agree replacing applesauce for oil. Nothing wrong with the rest though. - 7/22/08

  • And how tiny are these muffins? They sound delicious, but I'm afraid if I make them in normal sized muffin tins they are just too many calories to be worth it. A one bite muffin to me is a tease- Like 1 Dorito or salted peanut. - 7/22/08

  • I cut the recipe in half, and they were wonderful! I kept out half for the family dinner, and froze the rest. What a great addition to my breadfast the following day. I had 1/2 cp. cottage cheeze and a muffin, and it was a bit of heaven! A big Yum-0! - 7/22/08

  • I love these! But I didn't freeze enough of them. I haven't thawed and eaten the frozen ones yet. Fresh they are wonderful, but this is a lot of muffins at once for my household! - 3/13/07
