These are really good. I used white whole wheat flour (no white all purpose), substituted egg beaters for one egg, omitted the salt, substituted 2 T. applesauce for the butter (keep the canola oil!), and cut the sugar in half. I made muffins. If you spray paper liners with nonstick cooking spray, the muffins are easy to remove and the muffin won't stick to the paper when you remove the liners from the muffins before you eat them. Be generous with the cinnamon and extracts---this is where the flavor is coming from.
