Apple Cinnamon Muffins
I get so excited finding my favorite recipes in a healthy style, don’t you?
Healthy Apple Cinnamon Muffins are the best.
Replacing sugar with applesauce is the change I made 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. Don’t you?
The original recipe makes 12 muffins. you can easily double it to make more..
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!
You can make your own applesauce instead of jar. As I get older I find the less I need to do for a recipe the more often I tend to bake.
Don’t want to use butter? Substitute vegetable oil instead.
It is easy to split the flour to half all purpose and half wheat.
If you really want to add a crunch to the muffins I have included the instructions to make a cinnamon sugar topping. You just roll the warm muffins in it!
