Fresh Apple Muffins With Homemade Applesauce

Fresh Apple Muffins-
I have been trying to use up some of my canned apples lately. Looks like we'll have a good crop of apples this year! I made this recipe, but subbed WW pastry flour for unbleached and tweaked a little. Came out great! I doubled the recipe, since they freeze great, and made 12 large muffins. I found the recipe years ago here- Cooks.com -

1 1/2 c. flour
1/2 c. sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 c. vegetable oil
1 egg
1/2 c. milk
1 c. grated raw apples ( I used 1 cup coarse ground homemade organic applesauce)
I added fresh nutmeg and 1 cup walnuts

Sift together flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and cinnamon. Set aside. Combine oil, egg and milk. Add to dry ingredients. Add apple and stir just until ingredients are blended. Fill greased muffin pans 2/3 full and sprinkle with topping. Bake at 400 degrees for 15 to 25 minutes.


  1. These look so good - I wonder if I can make them GF? I have applesauce that needs to be used, so I may give it a try this weekend. It's good to know they freeze well, as it's so handy to have something available and quick for breakfast!

  2. I have some apples on the kitchen counter I got for apple and cheese lunches. What a timely post thanks!

  4. I made apple muffins yesterday too! Got the recipe from the “More Healthy Homestyle Cookbook.” If you still have a lot of applesauce, there is a good applesauce cake recipe on the Smitten Kitchen blog.
