  1. Thanks for visiting!
    You have a good point. I don’t have issues with eggs, so I never considered it but they probably would be just as good without egg.
    You could increase the flax by a tbs. or increase the apple sauce (not sure off the top of my head by how much) and they should be just as moist and delishious.
    Thanks for bringing this idea to me 🙂
    Take care of you,

  2. I’m thinking this may be good egg free, too. I’ve noticed that applesauce is a good substitute for eggs. I recently tried egg free muffins using an old ‘depression cake’ recipe. I was pleasantly surprised. It was a ‘spice cake’ recipe. I might try this one without the eggs and nuts. I love honey instead of sugar. It is so much healthier for you. Is this muffin recipe dense? Really moist? Thanks for sharing.
