Very moist and the flavor is perfect. The almonds on top are a nice touch but easily avoided if you don't want them. I will certainly make these again! Read More

This recipe is very easy to follow and absolutely delicious! I bought a different brand of muffin mix that called for 3/4 cup milk 2 eggs and 1/4 cup veg. oil so I modified it to 1/2 cup milk 2 eggs 1/4 cup oil and 1/4 cup applesauce and it still turned out great. I have a fundraiser bake sale coming up and these will be on the menu for sure! Thank you! Read More
