I made these today and they are about the best muffins I've ever made (and I bake a lot!). They rose up magnificently! I only had 1/2 cup applesauce so replaced the other half with 1 egg and some cream (so I un-vegan-ed the recipe!). I added some chopped up almonds in the streusel (I probably needed to reduce the amount of flour). They might be a bit messy to eat but the taste was fantastic, lovely light texture and the aroma still fills my house. Thank you for a wonderful recipe!!

Lucy, I'm so glad you made them and that they turned out lovely! Your substitutes are wonderful and I definitely am going to keep them in mind when I make them again because I always love veganized versions!! Thank you so much for your comment XOXO <3
