While these muffins certainly are delish, I don't think they are exactly "healthy."

I have made "To Die For Blueberry Muffins" for a couple years now and love them. I don't like the crumb topping regardless so I either make them plain or pull them out a couple minutes early, brush the tops with beaten egg white and sprinkle raw sugar on for the last couple minutes of baking. These were ok. I used homemade applesauce that was thicker than store-bought so that might be some of the issue. To me, for the few calories you save just make the real ones and enjoy them. Neither recipe is weight watchers friendly and one tastes far better

I only made two small adjustments to this recipe. I used "soured" lactose-free milk and I added a teaspoon of pure vanilla extract. I actually got 12 muffins out of this recipe, not 8. I did also bake mine at 350* and they were done at exactly 20 minutes. These muffins were nicely moist, perfectly sweet and had the perfect amount of blueberries--out of the 12 muffins I made, there are three left.

I would give them five stars if they were really "healthier." Now, that being said...leave off the topping and make them in "regular" sized cups yeilding 16 muffins: You have yourself a 100 calorie treat!

Great muffins! I also tried this recipe with a few modifications. Instead of miik I used almond milk (vanilla flavor). Also instead of 1-1/2 cup flour, I used 1 cup of flour and 1/2 cup whole wheat flour.

I was a tad nervous making a "healthier" muffin, but these came out moist, springy, and absolutely delish! I even used frozen berries since I had them in the freezer, and was 1/2 cup short but they are still bursting with berries! Put 2.8oz batter in each little cup, leaving only enough room for crumb topping and the muffin tops came out great! I had tons of topping left over though so you may want to make less to save waste.

I altered this recipe and was pleased with the results. I skipped the crumb topping and sprinkled a little cinnamon sugar on top of each muffin (before baking). I used 3/4 cup whole wheat pastry flour & 3/4 cup white flour. I added 2 tablespoons whole ground flaxseed meal and 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract. Yummy and healthy. I'll make these again.
