Welcome to Tweaked at Chez Jan de la Dayton....translated to 'tweaked at Jan's house in Dayton'! Sounds fancy, but it's not. If you choose to share a recipe, be kind and give me kudos for it. The pictures are NOT to be taken off this blog unless used in a direct link to this blog. Once upon a time I was a Weight Watchers leader....that chapter is closed. But I still like to eat and bake and don't like the weight that finds its way to me too easily. So I go find delicious-sounding recipes and tweak them. Some recipes, however, just don't turn out right if they're tweaked. I've not posted anything....so far.....that isn't WW friendly. That might change, and I'll warn you if I post something with 'scary' P+ values. For those who don't use substitutions, the ratio for Splenda granulated/sugar is 1:1 and the ratio for egg substitute/eggs is 1/4 cup of egg sub = 1 egg. Now.....let's have some fun in the kitchen!!!

Apple Cinnamon Chip Muffins

APPLE CINNAMON CHIP MUFFINS
Makes 12 Muffins
1 Muffin = 4 PointsPlus™


MUFFINS:
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup light butter, softened
1 cup Splenda granulated
1/2 cup fat-free egg sibstitute
1/4 tsp vanilla
1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 1/2 cups apples, peeled, cored & chopped
1/4 cup cinnamon chips

TOPPING:
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1 TBSP all-purpose flour
1/8 tsp ground cinnamon
1 TBSP light butter

Preheat oven to 375º. Spray a 12 cup muffin pan.

In a medium bowl, mix flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.


In a large bowl, beat together butter, Splenda and egg substitute until 'smooth'.


Mix in vanilla and applesauce. Stir in apples and gradually blend in the flour mixture.









Fold in the cinnamon chips. Spoon into sprayed muffin pan.









In a small bowl, mix brown sugar, flour and cinnamon. Cut in butter until mixture is like coarse crumbs. Sprinkle over tops of mixture in muffin pan.


Bake 20 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean. Allow to sit for 5 minutes before removing the muffins from the pan. Cool on a wire rack.











MY SPIN: No matter how I try.....my topping never comes out to where it will 'crumble' and be able to 'sprinkle'.....so the next time I make these, I'm going to make about half of the topping and just put a 'dollop' on top of each muffin before baking. I might even put 2 cups of apples in it.

These are the cinnamon 'chips' I used.

Yummmmm!!!!!

Now for the 'legal mumbo-jumbo' to keep me out of court!! *** The PointsPlus™ value for this recipe was calculated by me (Jan Gomes) and is not an endorsement or approval of this recipe by Weight Watchers International, Inc., the owner of the PointsPlus™ registered trademark. ***
