I get so excited finding my favorite recipes in a healthy style, don’t you? Healthy Apple Cinnamon Muffins are the best. And adding in the applesauce is an addition I normally make to my otherwise “old” recipe. These are so easy to make and I just love the way the house smells of cinnamon as they bake. The original recipe made 12 muffins, but I doubled it to make more because my family is a bit larger. The fact that my health conscious members will eat these and love them adds a feeling of validation to my attempts to turn my eating habits around. Baby steps, baby steps!
