In the Kitchen with Jason: Cinnamon Applesauce Muffins

These muffins are delicious and good to eat.I actually had very little to do with these other than eat them as Jess made them. I would like to point out that they are much easier to bake if you have your spouse do it for you (BIG GRIN!).
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 2 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 cups unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup wheat flour
  • 2/3 cups Splenda
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 Tbsp + 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Spray a 12 muffin cup pan with cooking spray.
  • With a mixer, cream together of butter and brown sugar for 3 minutes.
  • Beat in the eggs, applesauce and vanilla extract just until everything is mixed in.
  • In a separate bowl, stir together the flours, Splenda, baking soda, baking powder, and 1 Tbsp cinnamon.
  • Stir the flour mixture into the butter mixture.
    • Do not use the electric mixer. I don't know why this is important, but it is.
  • Evenly distribute the batter into the prepared muffin cups.
    • They should be filled about 2/3 full.
  • Mix the remaining cinnamon and sugar and sprinkle it over the muffins.
  • Bake the muffins for 20 minutes.
  • Cool for 5 minutes in the pan and then remove to a wire rack.
This recipe can be found in the Eat What You Love cookbook. I highly recommend this cookbook for just about everyone as it is much awesome.

Please enjoy!
