Ingredients needed

  • unsweetened applesauce
  • unsalted butter
  • milk
  • eggs
  • vanilla extract
  • salt
  • baking powder
  • all-purpose flour
  • cinnamon and nutmeg
  • sugar and brown sugar

How to make applesauce muffins

Step 1: Whisk together the flour, salt, baking powder, cinnamon, and nutmeg.

Step 2: Stir together the sugar, brown sugar, melted butter, eggs, vanilla extract, milk and unsweetened applesauce.

Step 3: Add the dry ingredients to the wet, and stir until just combined.

Do not over mix the batter. We want them to be light and fluffy!

Step 4: Line a muffin tin with 12 liners.

My personal favorite muffin liners are the parchment paper ones. Nothing sticks to them ever!

Divide the applesauce muffin batter evenly into the 12 cups.

Step 5: Bake the muffins at 350 degrees for 18-20 minutes, until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.

Remove the applesauce muffins onto a wire cooling rack to cool completely before storing.

These are delicious as is, or add a smear of butter on top!
