    The texture of these muffins was very good for being lowfat (not chewy or rubbery). Next time, I will put some batter in tins then the apples followed by the remaining batter because the apples slid off the muffins. I served them upside down.

    Pretty good, especially for a low-fat recipe. Next time, to make things easier, I will cut the apples in smaller pieces and forgo the 3 slices on the bottom; instead I’ll just mix it all in and put the maple syrup in the middle. Also, I didn’t have maple flavoring, so I substituted vanilla.
