I haven't made this yet, I want to this evening, but I'm confused. I got this connection after reading the berries article. I thought this was a recipe for blue berry muffins, but this morning when I read it, it said Chocolate Oatmeal muffins. There are not berries in the ingredients. - 6/19/07
I'm curious why you wouldn't substitute pumpkin for the applesauce, given that it calls for pumpkin pie spice. Pumpkin is about half the calories of applesauce and has twice the fiber. In fact, this recipe is very similar to the Applesauce Oatmeal Muffins already posted. - 6/6/07
