A must-try! These healthy applesauce muffins are so incredibly moist and delicious. Naturally vegan and perfect for breakfast or snack. Only 1 bowl needed!
**Optional: Softened apples into the batter. Not necessary, but incredible. For this, you will need 1 peeled and diced apple, 1 tablespoon brown sugar & 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon.
**If adding apples: Sauté apples, sugar and cinnamon in small pan until soft, about 10 minutes.
*This recipe was adapted after reader feedback on 10/12/22– a few readers had muffins that were too dense. The updated recipe reduces the applesauce amount and adds in oil instead of pumpkin and replaces some of the flour with oats. That said, if you want an oil-free muffin, substitute in 1/3 cup pumpkin puree for the oil and it will work!
***The original measurements were: 1 cup flour, 1/3 cup whole wheat flour, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 3/4 teaspoon each baking soda and baking powder, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, 1 1/3 cup applesauce, 1/3 cup milk, 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar, 1 tablespoon vanilla extract, and 1/4 cup each brown sugar and cane sugar. Combine wet and dry in separate bowls, then combine together. Divide into muffin tins and bake for 18-20 minutes.
