    I substituted 2 egg whites for one of th eggs, used skim milk, used only 1/2 cup of brown sugar, and added currents. They were really good - I love getting all that flaxseed in - 2/1/09

    These were fantastic. I've been passing them out to co-workers and family and everyone loves them. I substituted 1/2 cup applesauce for the apples and added 1/2 cup chopped fresh/frozen cranberries. - 3/11/08

    I substituted 1/2 cup of the brown sugar for Splenda granules. I also used zucchini instead of carrots. I was surprised at how moist the muffins are, and tasty!! - 4/19/08
