I agree... I don understand how is this supposed to be healthy with the sugar, the hydrogenated vegetable oil and the wheat flour. The only healthy thing on these are the eggs and fruits!

I am surprised at how much sugar these recipes have. You only need 1/3 cup sugar to make 12 healthy muffins. More than that is too sweet, more like the unhealthy bakery muffins that are making us all so fat. If you look at older muffin recipes (from your mom's or grandma's old cookbooks) they call for 1/4 cup sugar for 12 muffins! Our sweet tooth is getting worse as a country.

I'd love to see some truly healthy muffin recipes, ones that don't have dairy, eggs, oil, and sugar.
