Apple Applesauce Muffins contain no butter so they're lower in fat than traditional muffins, and they use whole wheat flour for even more nutrition.


White whole wheat flour 1 1/2 Cup (24 tbs)
Baking powder 2 Teaspoon
Salt 1/4 Teaspoon
Ground cinnamon 1 Teaspoon
Unsweetened applesauce 1/2 Cup (8 tbs)
Buttermilk 1/2 Cup (8 tbs)
Honey 1/2 Cup (8 tbs)
Egg 1 Large
Vanilla extract 1 Teaspoon
Chopped apples 1 Cup (16 tbs) , peeled
Cooking spray 2 Dash



Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Grease a muffin tin with cooking spray and set aside.



In a bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon.

In a separate bowl, mix together the applesauce and egg, followed by the buttermilk and honey.

Add the vanilla and stir well.

Stir the flour mixture into the applesauce mixture and mix until just combined. Fold in the apples.

Pour batter into the prepared muffin cups, about 3/4 full and bake 20 minutes, or until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean.



Serve the muffins with some warm milk.
