This is SO delicious. I wanted a heathy, nutrient-packed, sweet treat for Sunday evening, and this was perfect, BUT with healthy modifications, like other suggested:
Cut the white sugar completely, and up the brown sugar a tad to 3/4 cup.
Cut the oil completely as well - instead, increase the pumpkin to 1/2cup + 1/8 cup, and the unsweetened applesauce to 1/2 cup +1/8 cup as well. (To make up for the 1/4 cup of oil).
In addition, use 1/2 cup of egg whites instead of 2 whole eggs.
Sprinkle muffin tops with unsalted pumpkin seeds for a delicious, perfect touch.
Another tip: lets muffins cool, but while they are still warm (not hot), wrap in aluminum foil and seal in ziploc bags to freeze, if you aren't going to eat everything at once. It REALLY keeps them fresh when you store them when they are still warm, and easily defrost within 15-20 minutes, which is perfect to take one out when you are getting ready in the morning, grab and go and you have a delicious breakfast :)
