    These muffins don't taste guilt-free! They are incredible. The mini chocolate chips make a big difference too. - 3/8/09

    Very Good
    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! - 4/10/13

    The taste is good. Mine fell apart though. I used real sugar instead of Splenda. I dislike the taste of Splenda. - 12/1/12

    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. - 4/21/12
