Description

Not only are these applesauce muffins healthy but they are also moist and very delicious.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Rolled/old-fashioned Oats
  • 1 cup Unsweetened Applesauce
  • ½ cups Milk
  • 1  Large Egg
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla
  • 4 Tablespoons Butter Or Coconut Oil, Melted
  • ⅓ cups Sugar
  • ¾ cups Whole Wheat Flour
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • ½ teaspoons Baking Soda
  • 1 teaspoon Cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoons Salt
  • ½ cups Dried Cranberries Or Raisins (optional)

Preparation

1. Preheat the oven to 375 F. Line a 12-cup muffin tin with liners or grease the muffin cups. Set aside..
2. In a medium bowl, stir together the oats, applesauce, milk, egg, vanilla, butter and sugar. Set aside.
3. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt (and cranberries or raisins if using). Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and pour in the applesauce mixture. Stir until just combined (don’t over-mix or the muffins will be dense and dry). The muffin batter texture might be a bit different (a bit wetter) than other muffin batters but no fear, carry on!
4. Distribute the batter evenly among the 12 muffin cups. Bake for 15-20 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Don’t over-bake or the muffins will be dry.
5. Remove the muffins to a rack to cool completely. Once cool, I place 6-9 muffins in a large freezer Ziploc bag, suck all the air out (oh yes I do) and seal the bag. Then I freeze them, pulling them out one by one to stick in my kids lunches or warm slightly for a snack.

These were very good! I made them with coconut milk and coconut oil (so they were dairy free) and added cranberries. WIll be making them again.
