  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1-1/4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour, divided
  • 2 tablespoons quick-cooking oats
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten, room temperature
  • 1 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon sugar


  1. Combine the first five ingredients. In a 1-pint glass jar, layer 3/4 cup flour, oats, sugar mixture and remaining flour. Cover and store in a cool, dry place for up to 6 months. Yield: 1 batch (about 2 cups total).
  2. To prepare muffins: Preheat oven to 375°. Combine egg, applesauce, butter and vanilla. Stir in muffin mix just until moistened. Fill greased muffin cups three-fourths full. Sprinkle with sugar. Bake until a toothpick comes out clean, 15-20 minutes. Cool 5 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack.
