Eat Applesauce Muffins for a Healthy Breakfast

Applesauce is cheap when purchased in a large jar. I love to use it to make a healthy breakfast for those weeks that seem busier than usual. I’ll make the applesauce muffins on Sunday, and then individual wrap them so that they can be grabbed on-the-go during the week. My kids love anything that even resembles a muffin, so I feel good about feeding them one that is void of chocolate chips and oil.

You will need the following items to make the applesauce muffins:

  • 1 ½ cups whole wheat flour
  • ½ cups unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • ½ tsp. baking soda
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tsp. cinnamon
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 5 1/2 tbsp. butter
  • ½ cup raisins

Follow these steps to make your applesauce muffins:

Step 1:
Mix the whole wheat flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, brown sugar, and salt in a large mixing bowl.

Step 2:
Combine the butter, egg, and unsweetened applesauce together in a bowl.

Step 3:
Transfer the applesauce mixture to the dry ingredients in the mixing bowl. Stir until completely combined.

Step 4:
Toss in the raisins and lightly mix in.

Step 5:
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. While the oven is heating up, place the muffin mix in baking cups inside a cupcake pan. Fill each cup 2/3 of the way up.

Step 6:
Bake for 18 minutes total, or until the muffins are golden brown on top (or you can insert a fork so that it comes out clean).

Note: This recipe will yield a dozen muffins.
