"Applesauce muffins are the yummiest after-school snack, quick breakfast, or on-the-go treat. And this applesauce muffin recipe makes the most delicious and moist muffins ever! We’ve been loving all things apple lately in my home. It started with me making an apple crostata, and now we are on a serious apple kick. And of course, my kids try to suggest Snickers Apple Salad as often as they can! But I love having an apple recipe that I feel a little bit better about serving to my kids as a healthy snack option. Enter Apple Muffins Recipe! These apple muffins are seriously good! They’ve got all the apple flavor we love and since some of the fat and sugar is replaced by applesauce, I don’t feel so bad eating one, two, or more!"
