Mini-Applesauce Muffins

I’ve been on a muffin kick lately.  Thank goodness it is more muffin baking than muffin eating.  So, when I had a meeting at my house on a recent morning, I thought it was time to make some more muffins.  This time I went for applesauce muffins since I had just made some fresh applesauce the night before.

 

 

Applesauce muffins

I made little bite-size muffins that are just the cutest things.  And the best part is that they are dipped in a mixture of cinnamon and sugar while still warm.  Yum….The recipe is really simple (it’s from Taste of Home), and don’t worry…..you don have to make your own applesauce.

    Yum! These look so good. I sort of wish fall weather would hurry up so I’ll feel like baking. Does fall weather ever come to GA?
