Applesauce Muffins

These applesauce muffins are delicious and were compliments of daughter, Megan. She has used the Deceptively Delicious cookbook since her kids were born and everything she has made is delicious. I especially liked the streusal topping. Yummy and great with a cup of coffee or a glass of milk.

Applesauce Muffins

INGREDIENTS:
TOPPING
  • 2/3 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 1/4 cup firmly packed light or dark brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons trans-fat-free soft tube margarine spread, melted
BATTER
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 reaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/2 cup nonfat (skim) milk
  • 1/2 cup butternut squash or carrot puree
  • 1/2 cup firmly packed light or dark brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup vegetable or canola oil
  • 1 large egg
DIRECTIONS:
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Coat a 12-cup muffin tin with cooking spray or line with paper baking cups.
  2. To make the topping, stir together the oats, sugar, and cinnamon in a bowl. Stir in the margarine.
  3. To make the batter, combine the flour, oats, baking powder, baking soda, and cinnamon in a large mixing bowl or zipper-lock bag and stir or shake to mix. In a second bowl, mix the applesauce with the milk, vegetable puree, sugar, oil and egg with a wooden spoon. Add the flour mixture slowly, stirring until just moistened. Do not overmix–the batter is supposed to be lumpy.
  4. Divide the batter evenly among the muffin cups and sprinkle with the streusel topping. Bake until the topping is lightly browned and a toothpick comes out clean when inserted into the center of the muffins, 18-20 minutes. Turn the muffins out onto a rack and serve warm or cool.
