After reading other reviews, I decided to skip straight to some alterations that sounded good. I did the 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour + 1/2 cup oats (no all-purpose flour), 1/4 cup white sugar+ 1/4 cup brown sugar, 1 tsp cinnamon, 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg, 1/3 applesauce (no veg. oil), and I used instant non-fat dry milk (3 tbsp. milk powder plus 3/4 cup water = 3/4 milk) as I do for all of my baking when milk is required (saves having to keep as much fresh milk on hand). The baking powder, salt, and egg were as directed. I made sure not to over stir the batter and kept a close eye on the muffins in the oven which ended up coming out around 17 mins (my oven runs hot). They turned out great! Attractively craggy and rounded, rather dense as I expected with the applesauce substitution, and very tasty. They were gently sweet, and with the added spices smelled so good while baking. I will be making them again! I enjoyed them with the "Delicious Vegan Hot Chocolate" recipe from this site. That was a much sweeter and richer treat, which balanced these milder muffins. I also look forward to trying other variations on this versatile recipe.
