Fraiche Nutrition: Double Apple Muffins
We have an apple tree (so lucky), so I make a heap of apple sauce at the end of every apple season and freeze it for baking and snacking through the year. Charlie, our 3 year old, loves it on top of oatmeal, such an amazing way to start the day!
One of my favourite things to do, especially on a Sunday before a busy week, is to make a batch of muffins. Not only does my house smell amazing, but they give us a healthy snack and breakfast option for the week. They also freeze beautifully.
- Preheat the oven to 350F and line 18 muffin tins with paper liners.
- In a medium bowl, mix together the applesauce, grated apple, eggs, oil and vanilla.
- In a large bowl combine all of the remaining ingredients. Mix the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients until it is just incorporated.
- Divide the batter among the muffin tins and bake for approximately 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the centre comes out clean with no crumbs.
Homemade Apple Sauce
- Peel, core, and dice 1.5 lb of apples.
- Place in medium saucepan with 1/4 c. water and a dash of cinnamon.
- Cook on medium-low heat until apples are soft.
- Mash with a fork.
