Our brains may have a powerful built-in preference for sweets, and it may have gotten worse through habits. Despite this, we can get around it by using zero calorie sweetener to get the sweetening job done without adding empty calories. You can use this "shortcake" with a variety of toppings - it's YUMMY!

2 cups of Dr. Grandma’s Muffins Your Way mix
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
2 eggs or ½ cup egg substitute
1 cup applesauce
½ teaspoon cinnamon
Cinnamon sugar mixture to sprinkle on top of muffins, optional

Preheat oven to 400°F.

Coat muffin pans with vegetable spray.

Mix applesauce, water, oil, and eggs.

Mix cinnamon into the Muffins Your Way mix.

Mix egg mixture into Muffins Your Way mix; until just moist (do not over mix).

Fill 12 standard muffin tins.
