    I made them even less caloric! I substituted the sugar for Splenda, used applesauce instead of oil, as I do when I bake a cake, and loved the flavor even more. This version brings the calories down to just over 100 calories a muffin! - 2/27/08

    If you are looking for more flavor, try using a little less milk, and replacing it with lemon juice ( about 1 tbls or so). I do this all the time in recipes, and it makes a huge difference in the flavor. - 8/31/08

    I used half whole wheat flour and half all-purpose flour. Also added vanilla extract and a bit of orange zest. Very filling. - 6/16/09

    Yeah! Finally, a delicious muffin recipe that isn't full of Sodium. These freeze well and can be enjoyed with a short zap of the microwave or toaster oven. I decreased the sugar a tad and they were still yummy. THANKS SPARKPEOPLE - 2/27/09
