I was torn on how to rate this recipe as my review is not based on it exactly as written. In good conscience, I could not measure out the sugar - the amount of it in this 'healthy' muffin is astounding. They would no doubt be unbelievably sweet - the sugar and flour amounts are almost equal, wow, I just couldn't do it :). Having said that, I love the fact that there is no oil or butter, but applesauce, which is something I am quite accustomed to using when I attempt to make a muffin or loaf a bit healthier. I drastically reduced the sugar (quite so, as in using about 1 1/2 cups), mind you, I split the batter into 2 parts, using a small amount of semi sweet chocolate chips in one half and fresh cranberries in the other. My boys would be more likely to eat them with some chocolate chips, but I am partial to the tart pop of cranberries! I did sub out some of the flour for ground flax and left out the walnuts and raisins due to my other add ins. These muffins are very dense and heavy (not light and fluffy like some muffins can be), therefore look somewhat 'lumpy' when they are baked. I am thinking too that 6 eggs are a bit steep for the yield of this recipe, though I did not change that. A decent muffin, even with my few changes, these in my opinion are a 3.5. Happy baking!
