Apple Muffins

Earlier today I posted an Easy Applesauce Recipe. Although it’s nice to eat plain (I had some for breakfast this morning), it’s great for baking, too. I used some in a basic muffin recipe that yields 12 muffins. Preheat the oven to 400.

In a large bowl, combine 2 C flour, 1/2 C sugar, 3 tsp baking powder, 1/2 tsp salt.

Add to the dry ingredients 2 Tbsp apple cider vinegar, 1/3 C oil, and 2/3 milk of choice (I was out, so I used water). Also add 1/2 C applesauce. Stir just until dry ingredients are moist, it’s okay if there are lumps. If you over mix, the muffins will have a weird texture.

Fill lined muffin tin – each cup should be about 2/3 full. Bake at 400 for 15 to 20 minutes. Check doneness with a toothpick.

The muffins were kind of crispy on top, I think because of all the sugar, and super moist inside thanks to the apples. I didn’t add any cinnamon since there was already some in the applesauce, but you could add to taste with the dry ingredients if you want a really strong flavor.

I was glad I left big chunks in the applesauce, it was nice to get a big bite of apple in the middle of the muffins. But next time I’ll probably cut the sugar to 1/4 C, they were a little on the sweet side. What’s your favorite muffin addition?

    • I’m not sure what’s hurting your tummy, but if you think it’s the oil you could replace some of it with more applesauce. I would also like to try using full fat canned coconut milk, but I’m sure that will alter the flavor and also make the muffins more dense.
