Applesauce Muffins

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Sweet Diva MJ

Adapted from Taste of Home. We love these old fashioned tasty muffins. I substitute freshly ground whole grain flour for the all-purpose. These tender muffins freeze well. **PLEASE NOTE** If you substitute store-bought wheat flour for the all-purpose, you do not need to add the additional amount of flour - just use the same amount as all-purpose.

I have made these several times now and they are fabulous. This time I ran out of muffin cases so I made a dozen muffins and a cake and both came out lovely Definately a 5* recipe
