Oatmeal Applesauce Muffins

on June 2, 2015

As far as I’m concerned, you can never have too many muffin recipes. Muffins are such a versatile item. They can be breakfast, they can be a snack, they can be part of a nice lunch when served with soup and a salad. This recipe for Oatmeal Applesauce Muffins, that comes from one of Grandma’s sisters, is so good! I was too lazy to run to the store and buy applesauce, so I just used a jar of the applesauce I spent 3 hours canning last fall. You can find the recipe for the applesauce here. Oh well, I’m sure these muffins are WAAAAAYYY better with homemade applesauce instead of store-bought! You know it’s true! These muffins went with my husband on a boys weekend and apparently there was a somewhat picky eater in the bunch that thought they were “awesome”!

These really are SO good.

Here is the recipe as I made it:

Oatmeal Applesauce Muffins

1/2 cup butter, room temperature

3/4 cup brown sugar

1 egg

1 cup sifted flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon salt

3/4 cup applesauce

1 cup quick oats

1/2 cup raisins

1/2 cup nuts, chopped

Cream butter and sugar.

Add egg and beat well.

Sift together flour, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt.

Mix flour mixture and applesauce into creamed mixture.

Stir in oats, raisins, and nuts.

Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean.


Yes – homemade applesauce is way better than store-bought.


You can’t really see it here, but I topped the muffin batter with a sprinkling of sanding sugar, just to give them a little sparkle.


These muffins have a lot of fiber with the oats, applesauce, raisins, and nuts. That makes them good for you, right?


I’m sure they’re good for you. That means you can eat more of them. Even picky eaters will want to eat more of them. They’re just that good.
