The vanilla yogurt keeps them moist while the applesauce keeps them low fat.  These have no oil or butter.

Then you can add more butter to the top! These are great for little hands and mouths and you can feel great feeding them to your kids.

You can also cook this in a loaf pan.  It will take a little longer to cook.

If you are counting calories you can use a sugar substitute (one that measures like sugar) and an egg substitute.  I’ve tried the muffins with the substitutions and they turn out great.

This recipe can easily be make vegan by using a soy or almond yogurt.
