Low Calorie Pumpkin Oat Bran Muffin



Introduction

I found a recipe for low calorie pumpkin muffins but the recipe called for Splenda. Living abroad I can't get splenda but I still like to make low calorie desserts. I've used plain sugar but have added the oat bran and applesauce and cut down on the milk from the original recipe to make these yummy low calorie muffins. If yiu want them a little sweetwe you can use 2/3 cup sugar and gain a few more calories or if you want them less sweet, 1/3 cup sugar is fine as well. I have cooked them each way and my personal preference is a 1/2 cup sugar. I found a recipe for low calorie pumpkin muffins but the recipe called for Splenda.
