    They were a big hit and healthy too; will likely turn the oven down to 350 though next time as they were more than done at 20 min. - 3/9/09

    I didn' use raisins, vanilla, and subbed brown for whie sugar (it's what I had)

    This was an easy quick, and pretty healthy recipe. I would lke to make them again and try raw sugar, vanilla, nutmeg, raisins, and walnuts.

    Thanks for this recipe! My son liked it! - 4/30/08

    I'm not much of a muffin person but these are great! I put in 1/4 of walnuts instead of the raisins. Next time I think I will add a little more cinnamon, and bananas and try a little nutmeg as well. - 4/20/08

    yummy! I substituted egg beaters for the egg, and Splenda brown sugar blend for the brown sugar, which knocked the calories down to 141, and they were still delicious! - 4/19/08

  • I added chopped walnuts, nutmeg, and a little more applesauce since the batter looked a little dense. They were a little bland. Next time I'm going to try 1/2 cup brown sugar and see if that adds a little more flavor. They're still pretty good. - 8/22/12

  • Texture seemed off to me and a bit tough. Flavor was good though as I added more cinnamon. When they soften up a bit as they cool, I am hoping texture improves. - 1/5/12

  • Too bland and the texture wasn't right, very dense and gummy. I'm assuming this is due to using the applesauce in baking but maybe I didn't do something right? Either way I think I'll look for another recipe. - 7/27/11

  • Very easy and tasty. I used 2 tsp cinnamon, and mixed berry applesauce (it's what I had handy). Also, baked at 350 for 20 minutes in the toaster oven because it's too hot to turn on the oven!!! - 6/21/10
