I tried another's suggestion of cottage cheese instead of applesauce. Lowered the calories and still tasted good. Submitted by:

Excellent idea to add the oats to help with fiber and lowering of cholesterol. Submitted by:

I like some of the revisions listed below. The calorie and fat count is a little high for my taste.

I used a 1/2 cup regular brown sugar, (no Splenda), 1/2 cup cacao chocolate chips, and added 1 tsp each cinnamon and vanilla. I baked them for 18 minutes. Oh, so good and takes care of my chocolate craving as I'm not too big on real sweet. This was perfect! Submitted by:

These look really yummy! Going to save this recipe and I may reduce the sugar just a bit. Thanks So Very Much for sharing! Submitted by:

This WAY too high in sugar. Low fat alone is not helpful for most people, especially Diabetics!
Again, I implore SP to start posting sugar on the first page of the recipe. It IS listed on Nutrition on all packages in stores.

I only used a 1/2 cup regular brown sugar, 1 whole egg, 1/2 cup chocolate chips, and I added 1 tsp cinnamon and 1 tsp vanilla. I baked them for 18 minutes. Delicious! My modifications made 12 muffins at 148 calories a piece. Submitted by:

Very good. I used quick oats since I didn't have rolled on hand. I just let them soak for 15 min. I liked the texture better with the quick oats too. No big oats to chew on and still just as healthy. I also used semi sweet chocolate chips cuz it's all I had on hand and 1/2 cup real brown sugar. Submitted by:

This recipe is a keeper! I used fat free Greek yogurt instead of applesauce to increase the protein. I made 18 muffins from this recipe. Submitted by:

I use the same recipe except I use .5 cup sugar. I use to bring them regularly to work when I worked at a hospital and EVERYONE went crazy for them! They freeze very well too if you wrap them thoroughly in Saran Wrap before placing in freezer bags. Submitted by:

These are great! With these modifications they're 148 cal each. Substitute: unsweetened almond milk; 1/3c regular brown sugar; 1 whole egg; 1/2 c chocolate chips. Submitted by:

I took readers' advice and put the oats through the blender first, eliminating the long milk soak. I simply added the cup of skim milk with the other wet ingredients. Substituted pureed canned white beans in equal amounts for the applesauce. Used 1/2 c sugar and 1/2 cup chocolate chips. Big hit! Submitted by:

These are GREAT! My version: 1/2 brown sugar & 6 Tbs fat free coca mix. I bought dark chocolate chips (30 mini chips were only 70 calories). I added the chips once the batter was in the cupcake holder (only 4 per cupcake). Got my calorie count to 88. Complaint: sticks to wrapper. need to freeze & MW Submitted by:
