Excellent. It was a good year for apples, so I got carried away with apple butter. Searching for recipes to use it up, I found this one. They baked up beautifully. I also left out the raisins, but will add them next time, or some chopped or dried apples. Thank you for sharing!!

I used my homemade apple butter to make these and they were quite good. I used oil for the applesauce since I didn't have applesauce on hand. I also didn't add raisins. I think this could be a tad better if I used oats in the batter or maybe added a crumb topping. Overall, 5-star flavor!

I pretty much followed the recipe except for substituting in 1/2c. wheat flour. I chose to leave out the raisins. This resulted in a dense, chewy, yummy muffin! I got 15 muffins out of the recipe and I baked them for 30 minutes. I liked them as is, but next time I think I will add more cinnamon, perhaps 1 extra teaspoon. Also, I think that some chopped apple would be great to give it a bit more apple flavor. Thanks for a great recipe Dancer! It was my breakfast all last week!
