1/2 cup melted unsalted butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cup applesauce
2 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1 apple, peeled and chopped
Cinnamon sugar mixture
I recently bought a huge bag of apples from Costco that weren’t getting eaten so I decided to make some crock pot applesauce with it. Super easy. Peel and cut and cook on high for 4-6 hours. I then blended it in the blender. I had so much applesauce on hand so I decided to do some cooking with it. 🙂 I thought Apple Muffins were perfect for fall. 🙂
This recipe uses whole wheat flour. We own the Blendtec 52-601-BHM Kitchen Mill 60-Ounce Electric Grain Mill so my husband grinds our own whole-wheat flour. This is what we used for this recipe. It is so convenient grinding your own wheat when you need it for your recipes!
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. In small bowl mix butter and sugar. Add eggs, vanilla and applesauce and mix well.
3. In another bowl, mix whole wheat flour, baking soda, cinnamon and cloves.
4. Fold wet ingredients into the dry ingredients.
5. Fold in chopped apples.
6. Fill muffin cups half full with batter. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar mixture.
7. Bake for 20 minutes.
These turned out full of flavor, moist and a perfect fall treat. I loved having the apple chunks in them. It added such a great texture and flavor.
