I wanted to try this recipe as it seems a healthy alternative to other muffins. However, I live at 6,500 feet above sea level and this requires alterations or it would not rise. So here is what I did.
I cut back on the sugar by two tablespoons and cut the baking powder by a pinch. (Yes, I realize that is not exact but I just didn't fill the measuring spoon quite full. Also, I did not have applesauce so substituted two large mashed bananas. I needed to increase the liquid so added 1/2 of a diced, ripe mango. I thought this would complement the banana flavor. As some reviewers suggested, I also added a teaspoon of cinnamon and one of vanilla. Oh, I also subbed the chocolate chips for a 1/2 cup of craisens.
I didn't expect the muffins to rise much based on other reviews so filled the muffin cups 3/4 full and baked.
If I could give this recipe more stars I would. It is a great base that I can play with. Fabulous!!! Also the texture was cake like and no crumbling. Will definitely make again, and again and again...
