"Healthified" Apple Muffin Cake

Some of you may remember my recipe for Apple Cinnamon Muffin Cake (which is totally delicious) but I knew that there was a way to keep it delicious and make it healthier for you. Well, friends, I've done it, and I'm in a sharing kind of mood-- lucky you!

So here's the "Healthified" Apple Cinnamon Muffin Cake, because I love you, and your waistline ;-)

1.5 cups of sugar substitute (splenda)
2 eggs
1/2 cup veg oil
1/2 cup unsweetened apple sauce
1 tbs vanilla
1.5 cups whole wheat flour
1.5 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
2 tsp cinnamon
3 cups peeled, cored, chopped apple
Brown sugar and Nutmeg for sprinkling

In a medium bowl, cream together sugar, eggs & oil. Mix in the applesauce and vanilla.
In a large bowl mix all dry ingredients. Mix dry ingredients and wet ingredients- batter will be very thick- fold in all the apples. At this point, don't be scared to get your (Clean!) greased hands in there and work in any stubborn bits. Spread in a greased 13x9 pan and sprinkle the top with brown sugar and nutmeg.
Bake at 350* for 20-25mins

See? Looks almost just like the other one!
