Applesauce Cinnamon Oat Muffins Recipe

Applesauce Cinnamon Oat Muffins Recipe

My grandmother passed this recipe down to me, and I'm eager to share it with my children. The down-home muffins are tender on the inside and have a crispy topping of oats, brown sugar and cinnamon. I've even added raisins and cranberries to the batter for a different taste. —Hannah Barringer Loudon, Tennessee
