Country Applesauce Muffins

To make the applesauce for this recipe, peel, core and chop 2 1/2 lb. apples, such as Granny Smith, Newtown pippin or McIntosh. Place in a heavy saucepan with 1/3 cup water. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat to a simmer and cook, partially covered, stirring occasionally, until very soft, 20 to 30 minutes. Remove from the heat. Mash the apples with a fork or pass through a food mill. Taste and add sugar if needed. The applesauce can be stored for up to 2 weeks in the refrigerator. It can be used at room temperature or cold in this and other quick bread recipes. Makes about 2 1/2 cups.

Yummy Autumn Muffins
October 24, 2012
These were very good. Little bites of Autumn. Cinnamon and apples!! I used walnuts and dried cranberries. The batter was a little shy of the 12 standard size.

tasty breakfast treat!
October 5, 2012
I liked these a lot. I did make the homemade applesauce for this recipe. I also added a little wheat germ, a good handful of chopped nuts, and about 1/4 c dried fruit. They are not overly sweet and just right for a quick breakfast. I freeze them in a freezer gallon size bag and take 1-2 out at a time. Microwave to defrost and reheat. Easy and tasty
Pros: Healthy, Adaptable, Will Make Again

Applesauce Raisin Muffins
September 30, 2012
I substituted raisins and used only 1/2 cup of sugar to make these more family friendly. They were great and much more spongy than similar muffins I've tried. I recommend folding raisins in last to help with mixing. I'm also trying to figure out how to incoporate oats. Any suggestions?
Pros: Quick, Easy, Kid-Friendly, Adaptable, Will Make Again
