This was a super easy and delicious recipe. I nixed the nuts and pineapple to lower calories - and used soy milk instead of half and half. The result was delicious and super moist little muffins with a great flavor. They were still really moist the next morning, too. I will be making this again - in lots of forms, I can already imagine little chocolate ones, or maple flavored...yum!

Used sugar instead of splenda, all-purpose flour only, didn't have pumpkin pie spice so subbed with cloves & nutmeg, and left out the pineapple. These were a hit & very moist!

These were perfect for a little breakfast. As you can see by the picture, I had to take it with only 2 of those little babies left!! Hubby enjoyed them as much as I did. I didn't have any pineapple so I used 1 cup of cranberries. Quite tasty for being healthy for you!!
