Who is Otis Spunkmeyer? Actually, he does not exist. The character who flies around in the plane pictured on the product labels, searching the world for premium ingredients, is just a catchy name dreamed up by founder Ken Rawling's 12-year-old daughter.

The company offers low-fat versions of many of its 11 varieties of muffins, but they are more difficult to track down than the original versions. 

This reduced-fat conversion clone recipe of the famous Texas-size muffins has 4 grams of fat per serving, or 8 grams total—quite a reduction compared to the original muffins, which have a total of 22 grams of fat each.

    • Instructions

      1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.

      2. In a large bowl, mix together the sugar, applesauce, egg substitute, oil, salt, vanilla and baking soda. Add the buttermilk and blend.

      3. In a separate bowl sift together the flour, baking powder, and cinnamon. Add the dry ingredients to the wet, and mix well with an electric mixer.

      4. To bake the muffins, use a "Texas-size" muffin pan lined with large muffin cups. You may also bake the muffins without the cups, just be sure to grease the cups well with cooking spray. (If you use a regular-size muffin pan, which also works fine, your cooking time will be a few minutes less and your yield will double.) Fill the cups halfway with batter.

      5. Spray a couple of squirts of fat-free butter-flavored spray over the top of each cup of batter. Follow that with a sprinkle of about 1 teaspoon of brown sugar.

      6. Bake the muffins for 20 to 24 minutes or until brown on top (16 to 20 minutes for regular-size muffins). Remove the muffins from the oven and allow them to cool for about 30 minutes. Store muffins in a sealed container or resealable plastic bag.

      Makes 8 Texas-size muffins (or 16 regular-size muffins).
