Isn't That Pinteresting: Applesauce Muffins

Now that school is out, we actually have to feed the kids breakfast again. During the school year, they had breakfast at school every day, which was really nice. Since summer started, we have gone through pretty much every breakfast item in the house. So since I was working from home today, I took a 15 minute break to whip up a batch of muffins for the kids to eat for breakfast over the next few mornings.

I had a Pinterest recipe for applesauce muffins that I wanted to try - mostly because I had applesauce on hand.

It was so easy that it took me less than 15 minutes to make the batter, spoon it into the muffin cups, and pop the muffins in the oven. The wonderful smell of these muffins baking made my whole house smell good. 20 minutes later, they were perfect.

They even seem a little healthy, since they use applesauce as a sweetener - along with some brown sugar. Of course, I counteracted that by dipping the muffins into a powdered sugar glaze. :)

  • 3 tablespoons butter; melted
  • 1 cup confectioners’ sugar; sifted
  • 3/4 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 tablespoons hot water

I had to taste one, of course. Just to make sure they were good enough for the kids. And then I had to taste another one... just to be sure I was right about the first one. :) They are really delicious. And this is coming from someone who does not like to actually eat applesauce.

The only change I would make next time is to be sure I spray the inside of the muffin liners with a little cooking spray. The liners stuck to the muffins pretty badly. But that's a very minor problem!

This is definitely a successful Pin. Really, I'll be lucky if there are enough of these left to use for breakfasts... I have a feeling they'll disappear pretty quick once the kids get home!
