Some recipes are memorized simply because they are so easy. This is one of them. My easy applesauce muffins are dense, moist, and yes…a bit healthy (wheat bran, ground flax…it is good to make fibre your friend!). Great for a grab n’ go breakfast, mid-day snack with a cup of tea, or after-school treat. You’ll want to memorize this one too…
Family Activity ALERT: Get your kids in the kitchen and make these easy applesauce muffins together! Kids can measure, pour, and stir. (I advise cracking the egg yourself…no good ever came of a toddler cracking an egg).

Remember my delish Scotch Scone Recipe? This is just as easy!
Preheat oven to 350 C.
In a large bowl, combine the dry ingredients. Then, one-by-one add in the wet ingredients.
TIP: Baking with kids? Make one child in charge of dry ingredients and the other in charge of wet ingredients. That way everyone has their own responsibility and there’s no fighting-while-baking.
Mix batter until smooth (I use an electric mixer for this).
Line muffin tin with liners (I use silicone ones because I like being able to wash and reuse them – eco-friendly!).
Using an ice cream scooper (yes, an ice cream scoop!), scoop batter and drop it into muffin liners (one scoop is the perfect amount!).
Bake at 350C for 20 minutes. Makes 12.
