Applesauce Muffins

Every once in a while I get a random desire to clean out my fridge, sort of like my random desires to post on this blog! I found in the back of my fridge a container of applesauce that was halfway gone. I'm kind of the funny type when it comes to leftovers, I just can't stomach it. However, I CAN bake with it! So I went on a mission to find a yummy applesauce-something recipe. I stumbled on Heavenly Homemakers recipe for applesauce bread and decided to make muffins instead (another thing I'm funny about, I'd rather muffins instead of bread).

 The first time I used regular applesauce. The second time I had strawberry applesauce in the fridge and the muffins turned out just as yummy so feel free to experiment! If you use cinnamon applesauce, you may want to decrease the amount of cinnamon that you put in your recipe as to not be overpowered.

One of my favorite things about this recipe is that these are sweet with only natural sweeteners (unless you applesauce has added sugar in it). My whole family loves them! The children gobble them up and my husband goes back for seconds....and thirds...and...well, we'll just leave it at that ;).

I hope you enjoy!

Applesauce Muffins
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

1/2 cup honey
3/4 cup applesauce
2 eggs
1/4 cup butter, melted

Mix your dry ingredients and then add your wet ingredients. Mix well until all the dry and wet ingredients are combined. Pour into muffin liners and bake at 350 for 20 minutes or until your toothpick comes out clean. This recipe will yield a dozen muffins.

If you have a large family like me, I suggest you double the recipe because these will fly out of your kitchen!
