This is a wonderful recipe and it was a huge hit with my family, especially my picky five year old son!
Very good but I did make it a bit healthier. I did 1/2 white flour 1/2 whole wheat flour. I then did 1/2 canola oil and 1/2 unsweetened applesauce. Then I reduced the sugar by half to 1 and 1/4 cup. They were delicious and so moist. I agree with other reviews that I found, you only mix it until it is just combined. It's a lumpy batter. I only got 19 muffins out of the recipe, and I was able to bring the calories down to 187 and fat down to 7 for each muffin. Definitely try these! They are great and obviously very adaptable to your needs.
At first I thought it was a bit too much oil, but since I left them out for a day and then reheated them I thought it was enough to keep them moist :)
I loved the recipe, I dont think I used as much sugar (headaches) but for my first time making home made muffins even my husband was impressed.
I know why they're so good...lots of sugar and oil!! Next time, I will use 1/2 c. oil and 1/2 c. unsweetened applesauce to cut back on all the fat. Otherwise, very good flavor--my kiddos loved them!
