Applesauce Muffins

The original recipe for these muffins are from Deceptively Delicious, but I don't do very well with following recipes exactly, so here is my twist on it!

Applesauce Muffins

Ingredients:
1 1/2 cups flour
1 cup oats
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup carrot puree
1/4 cup Agave Nectar
2 tbs milled flax seed
1/4 cup water
1 egg

Mix dry ingredients together.

Mix wet ingredients together in a separate bowl.

Mix all ingredients together.

(I know, this is hard, please try to follow along!)

Pour into muffin tins, it makes 12.  I usually use a heaping 1/4 cup measuring cup and it fills the muffin tins perfectly!

Crumbly Topping: (you know, the best part!)
2/3 cup oats
2 tbs brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp flax seed
2 tbs butter, melted

Mi topping ingredients together and sprinkle evenly over muffin dough.

Bake at 400 degrees for about 18-20 minutes.


Enjoy, knowing this muffin is actually good for you!!!

  2. Agave is a great substitute for sugar. I even use it in my Brunswick Stew recipe. Thanks for sharing.
