    1/4 c. sugar
    2 tsp cinnamon

    1c grated peeled apple (1 large)
    2 tbsp cinnamon sugar mix (above)
    1 1/4c whole wheat flour
    3/4 c. sugar
    3/4 tsp baking soda
    1/4 tsp salt
    2 eggs
    1 cup applesauce (recipe calls for oil but I did a straight substitution)
    1 tsp vanilla
    1 tbsp melted butter

    In a small bowl, mix together the grated apple and the 2 tbsp cinnamon sugar; set aside. In a large bowl, stire the flour, sugar, baking soda, and salt together. Add eggs, applesauce (or oil), and vanilla. Stir until blended.

    Stir in the apple mixture.

    Spoon about 2 tbsp (1/8 c.) batter into muffin tin. sprinkle 1/2 tsp cinnamon sugar over the batter. Spoon the remaining batter over the sugar mixture using just shy of 2 tablespoons batter on each. use a pastry brush to dap the top of the batter with the melted butter. Sprinkle remaining cinnamon sugar over the top of the muffins.

    Bake just until the top feels firm and a toothpick comes out clean, about 25 minutes. Cool for 10 minutes in the pan on a wire rack. Remove from pan and cool completely on wire rack.


Makes 12 muffins.

    We made mini muffins with this recipe. They were awesome! My daughters kept asking for more and if we could make another batch. This one is a keeper!

    Delicious Muffins, but no baking temp is listed. I baked them at 375 for about 20 minutes and they were done. - 9/30/12

    I added about 2 tsp cinnamon to the batter and 1/2 tsp nutmeg. Baked at 400 degrees F. Didn't have enough batter to do 4 tbsp per muffin. Taste really yummy! - 4/15/10
