“I like it because it is a healthy muffin. I substitute Egg Beaters for the eggs. Instead of 1 cup of oil I use 1/2 cup oil and 1/2 cup applesauce, but that is up to you. I like to use frozen blueberries as then the colour doesn't turn the flour that yucky blue colour. You will have to test for doneness as it takes longer.”
12 muffins
