When I cook them for Collin and I, I use applesauce instead of oil to save on fat and calories but for her I made them with oil. Which got me thinking what exactly was the math. So Looking at the two different muffins one is made with oil and one is made with applesauce can you tell which is which? The apple sauce muffins will save you 38.5 calories and 4.5 grams of fat a muffin. They both taste delicious, the main difference I notice is that the ones made with apple sauce are more "spongy" but not in a bad way.
mmmmm either way they are delicious.
So do you think you know which is which?
