I like the Lactation Cookies, but also want something a little lower fat and just different from the cookies, so I tweaked a morning muffin a little - they turned out fabulous.

Preheat oven to 350?.
Place 18-24 muffin cups liners in muffin cups.
Combine dry ingredients (through salt) in a large bowl and mix well. Make a well in center of mixture. Combine yogurt, vanilla, banana, and egg; add to flour mixture, stirring just until moist. Fold in walnuts, pineapple, and coconut (or whatevery your add-ins are). Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups, about 1/4 cup per muffin. Bake at 350? for about 20 minutes.

the original nutritional information on it.
