    These look great Lori! And perfect timing. My daughter came home with a package of muffins from the grocery store yesterday and when she looked at the label and saw 22 grams sat fat per muffin she nearly had a fit! I am going to try your recipe but sub out half the butter for applesauce!

      That’s a great idea. Let me know how they are. I’ve heard of using applesauce for oil/butter but haven’t ever tried it myself.
