A healthy breakfast or grab-and-go snack made easy with these delicious and healthy Applesauce Muffins. Made without any sugar or oils!
So, I was taking a (figurative) stroll through my recipe archives the other day.
Every once in a while I like to go through to see what needs updated, change out some pictures, and get ideas for meal planning and food prepping for recipes that have ‘fallen through the cracks’ on the blog, so to speak.
When I came to my Baked Goods page, I laughed. The number of muffin recipes I have on the blog out number any other kind of food.
So, why not add one more?
I might have to say that these applesauce muffins are by far the best ‘healthy’ muffin recipe I’ve ever made. Sometimes when you bake with whole wheat flour, and many times when you eliminate all the sugar, your end result isn’t that great.
And I notice that when I bake with only bananas, and no sugar, my baked goods don’t stay good for very long.
Enter my new favorite baking ingredient: applesauce!
I did actually just throw these together one morning when I was heading to book club. But naturally when I’m in the kitchen, I always write down what I do in case it happens to turn out awesomesauce. (Yes, my friends are often guinea pigs to my kitchen creations.)
Well, this recipe was freakin’ awesome. Luckily for my friends, since I didn’t even try the muffins before I served them. Oooops. Apparently I’m pretty confident when it comes to my muffins.
So I made another couple batches to prove their awesomeness and it was confirmed.

This is actually one of the simpler muffin recipes I have made. And, thanks to my trip to Costco, I had 4 pounds of apples to work with!
