Delicious, healthy, low fat muffins that kids and adults both enjoy! Great for breakfast or as a snack with tea or coffee, or for kids' parties. Once cooled, these are portable enough for picnics.
Rather than muffins, this can also be made into a loaf. Pour batter into a 20x10cm (8 x 4 in) loaf tin, and bake at 180 C for 45 to 50 minutes.
I really liked this recipe for a few different reasons...1st being the small amount of sugar...second the applesauce vs. oil...third the cinnamon... fourth...they were so darn good!! I did add the whole eggs tho, and I doubled the recipe and added a whole bag of bitter sweet chips. Yummy, thanks Angela!! - 24 Jul 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
My family loves these muffins! I make them as mini-muffins, as they seem a bit chewy as regular size muffins. My daughter (a semi-picky teen) would eat the whole batch if you let her! Makes about 48 mini-muffins; I bake them for 5-8 minutes. - 04 Jun 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Go ahead and use the two whole eggs--they're not that bad for you. Reduce sugar to 1/2 cup and add 1 tsp. vanilla. I also just use one of those individual servings of applesauce, since that's all we ever have around. Although I wouldn't call this my favorite muffin recipe, the muffins keep well, travel well, freeze & reheat well, plus they are a snap to make. Finally, I haven't met a kid yet who doesn't like them, including my picky middle child who has a penchant for those huge "name-brand" grocery store muffins. Although they don't taste very much alike, he finds these to be an acceptable substitute. - 06 Apr 2004 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
