I, like ashleyco, used 1/2 tbsp cinnamon. I didn't have nutmeg on hand so I used 1/4 tsp pumpkin pie spice. I also replaced the applesauce with plain yogurt, and replaced the oil with applesauce as suggested. I also didn't have brown sugar on hand so I used 3/4 c white granulated sugar. I figured the lack of being packed meant I was using less sugar and I was okay with that. When you make these substitutions it ends up being about 180 calories per muffin, which is pretty awesome. I didn't mash the strawberries, which I recommend and will do next time around. I was worried that I had hyped myself up over these too much and that they wouldn't live up to expectations. They totally did however =D They're moist and super tasty and with the edits, not too much spice at all. Perfect actually - I'd recommend the pumpkin pie spice over nutmeg alone to add more dimension. I didn't find them bland at all. I froze the rest of my batch as someone else said they did- for mine, I wrapped them individually in plastic wrap and stuck them in a freezer bag. I'm excited to have these for breakfast, maybe with some yogurt.
