These went incredibly fast! Due to their small size, a double batch would have been in order. I did use leftovers from the Heavenly applesauce but any chunky applesauce would probably work just as well.

Very delicious !! I made mine into a loaf instead of the muffin and increase the baking time to 30 minutes!!

These muffins are quick and easy to make. We love the cinnamon and sugar topping! I did have to use a different cinnamon applesauce. Next time I will try these with the Heavenly Applesauce.
