1 1/2 cups
1 1/2 teaspoons
nonfat plain yogurt
packed brown sugar
1 1/4 cups

Gosh, you know......I followed this recipe closely making no changes or substitutions. The batter looked exactly as it should and it baked exactly as it should without issues. The one issue I'm having is that it turned out a little flavorless and the texture was off-putting. I feel terrible saying it, honestly. I shared one muffin with my two kids and after the first bite, noone really wanted any more. I think for me if I were to make this again, this would need more cinnamon (or maybe some additional spices), a little more vanilla and.......gosh, maybe something else. I can't put my finger on what it's missing. Three and a half stars for me.
These healthy and tasty muffins easily earn a 5 star rating from my crew. I grated the apple and used wheat bran in place of oat bran. I've come to expect that muffin recipes without oil are gummier than those that call for oil so the slightly chewy texture of these muffins is not off-putting for me.
I added about 1/4 C. oil and used sour cream instead of yogurt, because I didn't have yogurt on hand, and added about 1 t. vanilla.
Based on the reviews I added the extra oil, and vanilla. I even added a little extra sugar.
After baking them, I took a bite and realized it needs some salt. I wish I had added 1/2 teaspoon of salt as they are just a bit lacking on the flavor.
Hopefully that will help a bit with the texture too.
This was really good. I put a full teaspoon of vanilla and added 1/3 cup canola oil (was afraid not to)and baked them in cupcake cups. They are so good the family will never know that they are healthy!
