Healthy-ish Apple Muffins

TGIF! Today is Emerson's special day at school which means she gets to bring a snack to share. So I made Apple Cinnamon Muffins! Yup, this Mom has been on top of her game this month. In fact the last two months I've remembered to make a snack.... it only took me 10 months to pull it together. But who's really counting?

Anyway, last month was pumpkin muffins and this month apple muffins. Are you starting to see a theme? The secret ingredient in these muffins is applesauce.Yup, applesauce. Remember the 10 lb box of apples I bought during our trip to Apple Hill? Well, the hubby made a big batch of applesauce and now I'm using it to make muffins. We still have apples left and I'm thinking either an apple pie or crisp. Which one would you make?

Ok, back to these amazing muffins. They are baked to perfection. A few notes, while I used white flour and sugar you could easily sub with coconut sugar and coconut or almond flour. When I'm baking for Emerson to share at school I keep things as simple as possible. Everything has to be nut free, etc. Kids and their allergies these days ;)

These would also pair perfectly with a few eggs for breakfast.
