Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • Flavor Variations: Try cinnamon (or another flavor) applesauce in place of plain. For peanut butter muffins - add 2/3 cup peanut butter and 1 1/2 teaspoon baking soda. Especially good with a teaspoon of jelly baked into each muffin. For spiced muffins - add 1/2 teaspoon ground clove and 2 teaspoons vanilla extract. For banana spice muffins - add 2 medium bananas (mashed), 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract. For maple muffins - add 1/3 cup maple syrup or 1 teaspoon maple extract (syrup makes a moister muffin).

I added a teaspoon of homemade apple pie spice. I made no other changes. These were just okay. VERY dry. This was one of the few times my kids did not finish a whole muffin and they will usually eat 2-3 each in the morning.

I made these just like the recipe with small exceptions. I didn't have wheat flour so I used white and I baked at 375 degrees because I was using a nonstick pan. They turned out moist and delicious, just like the kind I used to love at snack time as a preschooler.

I found after I was ready to add the applesauce that I didn't have any!! So I used butter. I also used coconut milk instead of regular milk. They are light and moist and fantastic!! Just try them and see.
