I can't believe this is so low cal! I keep checking my fitness pal to make sure I didn't miss anything from the recipe. It is a bit sweet so I will use less Splenda and miss the cinnamon next time. Great recipe!
These were really good. However, I don't have a mini muffin pan so I had to use a larger one. Got 12 muffins out of it. Did the calculations (as I had to make a few changes) and each one is about 166 calories. Tasted very good and everyone enjoyed them.
Amazing recipe! This is way better than any boxed mix for muffins or cupcakes I've ever had. I'm experimenting with making it into cake format for my dad's birthday. He loves them more than I do and he's a health nut who couldn't be happier with the nutritional content.
I have these baking right now and haven't tasted the finished product yet. The batter tastes phenomenal! Very fudgy. One suggestion, though. It would be helpful to include a baking time (20 min or until tops are firm) as a guideline rather than just "bake tops are until firm".
These are great for satisfying that chocolate craving. The artificial sweetener flavor was a little too pronounced for me, and I only used 3/4 cup of it... next time I might switch out some Splenda for granulated sugar
Loved this recipe. I didn't have the applesauce on hand so I used canned pumpkin. Had to add some water though... I used cinnamon chips instead of chocolate chips (to go with the pumpkin). Tastes wonderful!
