Can't Believe It's Whole Grain Delicious Raisin/Craisin Muffins

READY IN: 32mins
Recipe by Jujubegirl

This is a simple but really delicious recipe I've developed over time. In spite of being whole grain, they are pretty light. Applesauce replaces the fat, and it isn't missed at all. They're sweet without being too sweet, and disappear right after I make them. My toddlers, hubby, and I all love them. Of course there's plenty of room for variation with this recipe--any type of dried fruit can be put in, you can play with spices, or add some packed pumpkin puree. Lots of options. ADDED NOTE: I figured out why these haven't risen for me the last couple times--I neglected to transfer the baking soda when I entered this recipe. That's fixed now and these should be as delicious as ever now!

I have made these twice now, both with delicious results! The first time I used only dried cranberries (I can't like raisins LOL) and my boys devoured them. The second time I used fresh blueberries, and while they were still delicious I will probably cut back on the applesauce or something if I make them using fresh fruit again to account for the juiciness. Thanks for posting! Made for PRMR.
