Chunky Apple Molasses Muffins

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by DailyInspiration

From "Grandma's Home Cooking" booklet - a favorite of the Washington Apple Commission. I love molasses in baked breads and cookies and the addition of the apple really sounds wonderful.

I did substitute applesauce for the oil. They turned out good. I was able to get 12 muffins out of this recipe.
