    Made a half batch of these for the first time this week from the Comfort Food Diet Cookbook. Moist and tasty and the streusel topping really dresses them up. Each muffin has 4 WW PointsPlus

    These are really yummy! I used home grown blueberries! Will try whole wheat pastry flour next time.

    These are tasty! Instead of the egg white I added 2T unsweetened applesauce.

    We LOVE these muffins! They are so moist and have a great flavor. They are quickly becoming a staple in our house.I like to use whole-wheat flour instead and use 1/4 tsp of lemon juice in place of the lemon peel.

    These are yummy! The batter is very loose, like a cake batter, don't let that scare you - they bake up fine. I use 1/4 to 1/2 tsp of lemon extract in place of the lemon peel.
