I used shredded zuchini instead of apple, sour cream instead of oil and added chocolate chips - very good. Hope the kids like them when they get home :)
I agree with the recipe submitter - these are almost the best muffins I have ever eaten! All the different flavours of apple/carrot/pecan/coconut together are incredible. I did, like other reviewers, find them slightly oily so next time I will add less oil.
Try cutting down the oil to 1/2 cup instead of 1/4 cup.
I checked out other recipes that are similar to this and most others just use 1 egg and 1/4 cup oil. I'm gonna try that which should lead to much less fat (more diet friendly) and a lighter muffin.
I'm gonna try adding oats to it next time. It has a lot of oil and eggs so I'm also gonna replace some of the oil with applesauce I think.
