      You can use any milk it just might later the points, but overall per muffin it shouldn’t

  1. When entered the nutrition info to my tracker for individual muffins it said these were four points, with the recipe builder it’s two. Do you know why it would be different?

    • Drizzle Reply

      If you are using my nutritional numbers then as stated right after I list them it includes all ingredients (apples & eggs which are zero foods) so those numbers will give you a higher read in your calculator, when you build a recipe in the app it gives you the freestyle value taking into consideration those zero point foods

      • That makes perfect sense, Thank You! I just wanted to make sure I counted them correctly. I really like the recipe!

    Thanks so much… Next time, I will follow in all details, ’cause I used paper cups…with the result that half of each muffin stays in there. But there are good !!

    • Drizzle Reply

      Hi Louise, yeah I never use paper liners.. due to ingredients used it will stick πŸ™

  4. Is one muffin considered a serving….so 2 freestyle points would be for 1 muffin?

  5. Hi what kind of apple should be used for this recipe? I only have Gala in my house; that is the only kind we like to eat. Thanks!

      They will be good a few days in the fridge then I’d freeze them, due to ingredients used they don’t have a long “shelf life” so to speak πŸ˜‰

    Can I use regular homoginize milk? I’m sure the point value will go upπŸ€”
    I’m excited to try this tomorrow ❀️

    • Drizzle Reply

      yes you can use it but as you know points a bit higher

  7. Looks delicious, but I don’t have muffin pan. Can this be made in loaf pan instead?
    If so, What would cooking time be?

    • Drizzle Reply

      Hi, I have only made as muffins, that said it may still work as a loaf or maybe squares in a 8 or 9inch square dish.. squares would be same baking time, loaf usually is 45-50 minutes

    These are so yummy! I used a brown sugar substitute ( Sukrin Gold) in place of the brown sugar…and it came just 1 point per muffin, and they were still delicious! I used parchment paper baking cups, and mine peeled right off…no muffin stuck to them. I peeled them as soon as they came out of the oven, and sat them back in the hot muffin tins to cool completely. These are so good with a cup of coffee! πŸ™‚
