My regular readers know that one of my favorite ways to get my kids to eat more fruits and vegetables is by using purees in my baked goods, and substituting some of the oil for applesauce.
But today I’m sharing with you a recipe that is all about the applesauce as part of the “Get Your Chef On” challenge. I know you and your kiddos are going to devour these!
Not only are these muffins moist and flavorful from the applesauce, but the sweet topping means that you can use unsweetened applesauce. These are the perfect Fall muffin – I hope you give them a try!
