Come and see what I will be cooking up on Marilyns Treats this week!
This is what I featured the week of 1- 13 to 1-17 on my blog. On Tuesday morning were Apple Cinnamon Muffins with applesauce. Wednesday were Blueberry Muffins. And wrapping up muffin week were Gluten Free Banana Bread Muffins. Enjoy!

I love muffins, don’t you?
Fresh blueberries are such a natural sweet addition to the batter you don’t need much more.
For a get together you don’t have to worry about cutting portions, or having just the icing eaten.
If you are like me, I didn’t even use papers since they are a such a mess!
Add ice cream to muffins and a nice hot cup of tea or coffee and dessert is under way!
Did you ever know of a 6 year old that didn’t want a birthday cake? My granddaughter asked for a bowl of whipped cream, and then muffins for her big day yesterday.
She definitely did not inherit my sweet tooth!
Although she doesn’t love all sweet things most six year olds do, she also holds on to her great eating habits instilled by her watchful parents.
A vegetarian dinner of mac and cheese, a pot full of squash, parsnips, onions and broccoli, and soy chicken was gobbled up in record time.
She was only interested in enjoying her whipped cream and muffins! I am so proud!
i like this recipe calls for fresh or frozen blueberries. When blueberries are in season we always have a refrigerator full.
My granddaughter is old enough now to help me bake. And this is one recipe she can finish all on her own.
I made these muffins in less than 30 minutes. That makes them a perfect answer to having a baked good on hand in short notice.
The whole family enjoyed the fact they were delicious and that my granddaughter prepared them.
She is following in her grandma’s foot steps!
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!
These muffins were so moist and delicious!
They came together very fast and really you don’t need a mixer at all.
Since my granddaughter needs to be folic acid free as well as gluten free this recipe was really a great find.
It is hard for her when she is around other children at school.
She is great at refusing the offer of “take a bite”. But it is hard since she loves bread and pasta.
Some restaurants are now offering some gluten free items. But having a treat now and then like these muffins makes her smile.
They only took one bowl, a few measuring spoons, and one measuring cup.
Now that’s my kind of recipe!
Not many dishes at all.
I made a double batch because I know my family when something healthy and homemade is around.
In fact, the first batch is gone already! We loved them, and your family will too.
