I made healthy substitutions,also, and they turned out really delicious. I scaled the recipe down to 24 as 36 would have yielded too many: 3 cups of whole wheat flour and only 1 cup of sugar (2+ cups seemed like too much); I didn't have all of the spices, but I did have cinnamon and apple pie spice and vanilla extract. Not all my children like raisins, so I didn't mix them into the batter; I added them to the top of 1/2 of the muffins. I made a simple topping to the muffins before baking: cinnamon and sugar (I keep this mixture in an old cinnamon container to sprinkle on the kids' toast), dash of apple pie spice and raisins. The muffins are not "picture-worthy" but they taste great and the kids couldn't get enough of them. When I entered the ingredients into a calorie calculator, they were about 120 cals each. Not bad and with healthy ingredients and fiber.
