Mom's Applesauce Muffins...

Morning lovelies! Are you ready for a new recipe? Today I am sharing one of my kiddos favorite muffin recipes. We love to have these for breakfast or for a yummy afternoon snack. Even hubby likes these, which is quite a compliment. Homeboy isn't a huge muffin fan, but these babies have him downing them two at a time.

These are also great to double batch and store in the freezer. Just thaw on the counter when you're ready to eat them. I usually thaw them overnight.

{Mom's Applesauce Muffins}

1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 egg, beaten
1 cup applesauce
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground cloves
1 tsp baking soda
1 tbl ground flax seed
1 tbl ground wheat germ
1 tbl ground bran flakes
2 cups All-Purpose flour
1 cup raisins

Combine all ingredients in a bowl and stir until moistened. Fill lightly greased muffin tins 3/4 full. Sprinkle with crumb topping (recipe below). Bake at 350' for 25 to 30 minutes. Makes 12-16 muffins.

{Crumb Topping}

1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup All-Purpose flour
3/4 cup quick cooking oats
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 tsp cinnamon

Blend all together until crumbly.

  1. Yum! I have a whole case of applesauce that will expire soon, these will be wonderful to make!

  2. Lovely recipe! I've saved it. I think you'd like to know that you've written ground "gloves" instead of "cloves" though...hahah. :)

    1. haha that's too funny! We definitely don't want "ground gloves" in our muffins ;) I just fixed it. Thank you so much. I swear I read over every post at least three times, but little things always slip through. I love it when a sweet friend points them out, so I can fix it. Thanks so much! :)
