Applesauce Oatmeal Muffins

Applesauce oatmeal muffins are a moist, healthy treat that functions just as well for breakfast food as they do for an afternoon snack with coffee or tea.

I am not one to ‘eat healthy.’ My family never did carrot sticks and apple slices, so needless to say, it’s not really the thing I reach for when I need to chew on something. On that note, I am not a junk food person either. I have a box of Cheez-Its I absconded from my parents house with that I know will go stale long before I even put a dent in the box.   But, as I’ve gotten more into food, the choices I make on a day to day basis are changing in a way that I feel is more healthy. I don’t eat red meat every night any more (as honestly I wouldn’t mind doing) and I even have whole wheat bread in my pantry at all times now.

I know, its a miracle!

I didn’t have applesauce though. When I saw this recipe I knew I wanted to try it! I am not sure why, as I am not a huge fan of applesauce, but something about it jumped out at me. So I gathered all of the supplies for this recipe (that 99% of you should already have in your pantry) and got around to making it.

These are hearty little breakfast muffins that warm up well. Perhaps the cinnamon I used was old and had lost some of its potency, but if I were to make these again I would up the cinnamon to at least a tablespoon. I would also substitute the raisins for dried cranberries in the future just to add a little something.

How do you think shredded carrots and honey would taste in this? I'm thinking of trying to make a bit of a carrot cake flavor and spreading some cream cheese on top

You deserve an award for these... I just made 'em. It's going to be a struggle to stop eating... All I changed was the topping. Just mixed up some butter, brown sugar, some oats, and cinnamon and threw it on top before baking. YUM! Thanks!

1/4 applesauce is a great replacement for an egg in any baked good. i use it all the time when cooking cupcakes and breads

lovely hearty muffins. do you think 1/2c raisins is enough for the recipe?

(fyi, there's a small typo in the credit to the "brown eyeD baker" : ) )

I did two 'handfuls' I'm sure that a 1/2c would be fine. Thanks for pointing out the typo! Fixed :D
