Healthy Muffins

I decided to make muffins late tonight (technically yesterday night)so that my husband could enjoy one or two with his  morning coffee.  I would've preferred him have them straight out of the oven, but he wakes up earlier than I do.  By the time baby E and I wake up, the hubby is already at school.

As, I had mentioned in a previous post, I'm new at the whole baking thing so I thought I'd take things slowly until I feel comfortable enough to bake from scratch.

For the time being, I always use store bought muffin mix.  This time around, instead of following the original recipe, I decided to make the healthier version-which can be found on the side of the box. This was my first time using this mix, in particular, so I can't really compare the flavor and texture of these much healthier ones versus the originals. But, I can say that the end result was simply scrumptious, delicious, sweet yumminess!  Muffins aren't really good for your health, so at least I can try and cut out some of the ingredients that makes them so deliciously bad for you. Right????

I decreased the amount of water/substituted oil for applesauce/used 1 egg instead of 2



After having let the muffins cool on the rack I put them in a plastic container as to save them for the rest of the week.  Wonder how long they really will last? hmmmm...

 In addition:
