sugara free pistachio muffins

Can any one help with getting the recipe for the pistachio muffins (sugar free) at Ponderosa. I asked about them, and was told that they are from a mix that is purchased at Gordon’s Food Store. I tried to get infor there, but they said they were only sold to Ponderosa. I would love to get the mix, but if I can’t, then maybe I can make them myself…

Pistachio Muffins

2 cups whole-wheat flour
3/4 cup light brown sugar (packed)
1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
1/4 cup shelled pistachio nuts, chopped
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon table salt
3/4 cup low-fat (2 percent) milk
1/2 cup applesauce
1/2 cup canola oil
1 egg
Topping (recipe below)

Mix flour, sugar, oats, pistachios, baking powder and salt in a bowl,
stirring with spoon until well blended. Add milk, applesauce, oil and egg all
at once. Stir lightly just to mix. Don’t overmix or texture will suffer.

Spoon into 12 greased, paper-lined muffin cups. Spoon topping over batter.
Bake at 400-F for 18 to 22 minutes or until golden brown, turning pan around
after 15 minutes for even browning. Cool 5 minutes; then remove from pan and
cool on wire rack. Makes 12 muffins

Topping: Mix 1/4 cup chopped pistachios with 2 tablespoons (packed) brown sugar.

For reduced sugar, I would use Splenda Brown Sugar.
