Whole Wheat Applesauce Muffins

These are yummy! Kids love them, guests love them, everyone loves them. They're also one of the easiest homemade muffin recipes to whip up. Enjoy. (An especially good recipe to have on hand if you entertain those who require dairy-free or egg-free diets!)

Note: I updated this recipe 3/31/12 to reflect the way we make them now--if you prefer the old version, simply double the oil. The new way makes a more cake-y muffin, and we like them better.

From our Aunt Jeanne

  • 1 c. brown sugar
  • 1/4 c. oil
  • 1 c. applesauce
  • 1 1/2 c. whole wheat flour
  • 1 t. cinnamon
  • 1 t. baking soda

Mix brown sugar and oil first. Then add remaining ingredients. Fill muffin tins 2/3 full. The muffin tops come off easily if the muffins get much bigger than the pan allows; err on the smaller side and just make more muffins if your muffin pan has small cups.

Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes.

Makes 10 muffins or so

I bought applesauce this week just so I could make these for breakfast tomorrow and freeze some for lunch during the week. Thanks!

I might make these tomorrow to use up the rest of our leftover cranberry relish! I'll let you know how they turn out.
