Applesauce Oat Muffins

Applesauce Oat Muffins – So I have another muffin recipe for you. And it’s from Mel’s Kitchen Cafe. I think there’s a theme going on here. 😉 Two things that I love, I guess: muffins and Mel’s blog.

These are the sort of thing that are pretty humble and very straightforward but are just so good. Slightly spiced and very moist, they are a definite favorite around here. Every time I bring one out of the freezer Will gets so excited that he can’t sign, “more, more, more” fast enough. He will devour an entire muffin in about 12 seconds. 😉 Jack loves them for a snack, as do I.

I always, always double the recipe ( below is for a single recipe) so that I have plenty in the freezer.

4. Divide muffin batter evenly between the muffin tins, filling about ⅔ full. Bake for 15-20 minutes, until a tester comes out mostly clean. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for a few minutes in the muffin tin before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.

5. To freeze, place in a zip-top bag, in a single layer and lay flat in the freezer. Reheat for a few seconds and enjoy!
