Reviews for Curly Maple's Applesauce Muffins
"My "go to" muffin recipe is the Basic Banana Muffins here on the Taste of Home site, but I decided to try this one since I had a very large jar of applesauce opened that I didn't want to go to waste. This recipe is very good, and I did not modify it at all, however I feel it would benefit from the addition of a streusel topping."
"I was going to make banana muffins, but found someone had absconded with the bananas, knew i had some applesauce in the pantry so went looking for an alternative and found this recipe. My son loved them and so did I."
"i replaced the flour with half oats and half whole wheat flour. they were wonderful!"
"I've been making these for so many years! I used to have them ready for my sons when they came home from school. They are delicious and simple to make."
