Silly Silly Applesauce Muffins

Family Blog about Frugal Living: Applesauce Muffins

This morning I decided I was going to take advantage of the “extra” hour given by DST and wake up earlier than my kiddos. I only ended up getting 40 minutes (try telling my kids we get an extra hour of sleep..they aren’t buying it!), but they were the most productive 40 minutes I’ve had in a LONG time.

In 40 minutes, I:

1. Read my Bible Verses
2. Did a quick 10 minute exercise DVD from Netflix
3. Took a shower!

The only thing that would have made the morning more productive is if breakfast had been ready by the time the kids woke up. Noah requested Silly Silly Muffins, and unfortunatley I have no recipe for that (what kind of mommy am I!). I was able to convince him that Applesauce Muffins were really quite silly…so we pulled out the ingredients and got to work! Here’s our recipe:

Silly Silly Applesauce Muffins
(we use cupcake liners and it makes about 12)

  • 1 1/2 cups flour (we do half wheat half white)
  • 1 tspn baking powder
  • 1/2 tspn baking soda
  • 1/2 tspn salt 
  • 1 tspn cinnamon
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • 2 1/2 tbspn butter
  • 2 cups apple sauce
  • 2 small apples diced
  • 2 eggs
  1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Mix dry ingredients together
  3. Add wet ingredients and apples and mix until batter is just moistened
  4. Line cupcake pan with liners and spoon in batter
  5. Bake for 20-22 minutes
  6. Let cool and enjoy!
I thought this recipe would be a great addition to the frugal recipes here on Family Friendly Frugality!
