Applesauce Oatmeal Muffin-Tops (Or Muffins)

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Galley Wench

Great for breakfast, snack or a brown-bag lunch. Adjust baking time accordingly if making regular muffins. Original recipe comes from William and Sonoma, however I've made a couple additions. UPDATE: The recipe has been changed to incorporate suggestions from reviwers. UPDATE #2: Also changed the instructions to reflect the previous changes.

These were great. I used the whole egg option and added the flax seed. I did not add the raisins as I was out of them. I really liked the fact that the recipe uses applesauce and not oil. Thanks for the recipe.
