A staple in our house, especially for hectic school mornings. These are moist & fantastic warm or cold . . . it's a recipe I first discovered while I was a live in nanny for two little darlings. These muffins will forever remind me of Nikki's blonde messy curls as she peered into the bowl while she stirred and stirred. Now Mimi and Middle love to make these . . .
2 tbsp vegetable oil
1 ½ cups applesauce (that's about 3 lunch cups)
2 cups flour (sometimes I do 1/2 whole wheat)
1/2 cup of sugar IF you are using sugar-free applesauce, otherwise, omit sugar
¾ tsp baking soda
2 tsp baking powder
½ tsp nutmeg
½ tsp cinnamon
optional additions: nuts, raisins, or our favorite -- a couple good palm-fuls of mini chocolate chips
Bake at 350 for about 25 minutes or until the center springs back to the touch.
