This recipe is so insanely easy I can't believe it works! If your looking for something that is low in fat and just under 200 calories a serving (cupcakes about 124 cals) you have found your recipe. I didn't use any oil and it turned out moist and delicious! This recipe is so versatile you can add fruit if you wanted or some chocolate chips, or nuts, do anything! I originally got this recipe from Allrecipes but altered it because of some of the comments and my own preferences. Enjoy!
