I sometimes makes these moist, fruity muffins a day early to cut down on last-minute preparation. They get a special touch from a quick-to-fix cinnamon-honey spread.—Phyllis Carlson, Gardner, Kansas

"These were average! They didn't taste "strawberry" enough to me."

"I went a little healthier:

-no oil
-only one egg
-1 1/2 cups chunky cinnamon applesauce
-1/4 cup lowfat milk
-2/3 cup nonfat plain yogurt
-unsweetened frozen fruit instead (and try mixed berries too)
-1/4 less sugar (adding a smidge more flour)
-no food coloring - just use the liquid from the thawed fruit and a little less milk
-and try "white wheat" instead of white flour (fewer total carbs, with more fiber, and more protein)
Yum!"

"Loved this recipe! I made a couple of modifications, used 1/2 cup olive oil and 1/2 cup ripe, mashed banana. Also used fresh strawberries and a few leftover blueberries. Wonderful!"

"Very tasty. I used one commenter's half-oil, half-applesauce suggestion. But I'd not noticed the yield - yikes!"

"Oh my goodness, so delicious! These muffins are so light and perfectly sweet with the spread on top. The only change I made was to replace half of the oil with applesauce, and I got 2 dozen regular sized heavenly muffins :)"

"Excellent way to use the extra strawberries in our strawberry patch. The cinnamon-honey spread is delicious!! It would be even better with 1/2 cream cheese and 1/2 butter because cream cheese icing is my favorite thing!"

"I lighten this up by using 1/2cup oil and 1/2 cup applesauce. Additionally I use the frozen bag of unsweetened strawberries and they come out great. I have also made this into 2 breads and bake for 55-60 mins"
