Makes 21 cupcakes
1 cupcake = 3 PointsPlus™
2/3 cup Splenda granulated
1/2 cup canola oil
1/2 cup fat-free egg substitute
1 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 cup molasses
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
2 1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp ground allspice
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/3 cups reduced-fat whipped topping (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl, beat the Splenda, oil and egg substitute until well blended. Add applesauce and molasses; mix well.
In a small bowl, combine the flours, baking soda, ginger, cinnamon, allspice and salt; gradually beat into applesauce mixture until blended.
Fill paper-lined muffin cups two-thirds full. Bake at 350 degrees for @20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Let cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks to cool completely.
Optional: just before serving, top each cupcake with 1 TBSP whipped topping.
PS – Thinking I should change the name of these to Molasses Cupcakes!
