    Chellynae's Note:

    I needed to use up some applesauce my 3 year old wouldn't eat and came up with this recipe. We both loved them, so I guess I got him to eat that applesauce anyway! I love the way the edges carmelize. YUMMY! **Please see the reviews for a variation of the original recipe that should fix the rising problem.**

    2. 2
      In a separate bowl, mix together baking soda, baking powder, salt and flours.

      Mix wet and dry ingredients all together. (Never over mix muffins.).
    4. 4
      Pour into greased muffin tins, and bake in 350 degrees oven for approximately 30 minutes. Muffins are done when a toothpick stuck in the middle comes out clean.

      Do not over fill muffin tins as these muffins tend to spread out instead of rising up.

      I am giving this 4 stars for flavor, which is great, but I had to do some adjusting of ingredients. The ratio of wet to dry seems wrong to me. I think the final step (#5) says it all. With that much liquid, muffins will spread instead of rising. I made the following changes: 1 cup applesauce, 1/2 cup agave (which still gave them enough sweetness) and 1/4 cup melted butter. Mine rose fine. I also added some nutmeg with the cinnamon. I made 2 batches-one plain and one with dried cranberries. Made for Fall 2009 My 3 Chefs game.

      They smelled wonderfuI. I followed the recipe to the letter, but they were too wet. They went flat. I agree with mikekey, I should have used half of the agave. They actually had a bitter aftertase. Unforunately, I had to throw them out.

      These taste and smell really wonderful and are very moist. Maybe too moist for me.. Next time I'll try the recipe as Mikekey suggests.
