Is there anything more delish than a fresh, tree-ripened apple? I think not. 😉
As I’ve said (again and again) I love Autumn for so many reasons.
Apples and the fall harvest of tree fruits and root veggies are a big part of why.
A favorite Apple Muffin recipe.

Applesauce Oatmeal Muffins
A great way to use up leftover applesauce. Makes 10-12 large muffins. An ideal lunchbox treat!!!
1 C. buttermilk
1 C. unsweetened (see note below) applesauce (preferably homemade)
1 egg (preferably free range) beaten
¼ C. vegetable oil
½ C. raw brown sugar
1 C. uncooked rolled oats
½ teas. sea salt
1-2 teas. ground cinnamon(to taste)
1/2 teas. ground nutmeg or cloves
2 teas. baking powder
1 teas. baking soda
1 ¼ C. unbleached white flour
½- ¾ C. chopped walnuts or pecans (opt.)
Preheat oven to 400. Thoroughly grease muffin tin and set aside. In a large bowl, combine first 4 ingredients. Gradually stir in brown sugar and mix well.
Combine remaining dry ingredients in a medium-sized bowl and add to liquid mixture, stirring just enough to combine, don’t over mix or muffins will be tough.
Fill muffin tins 2/3 full. Bake 12-15 minutes, until done.Reduce heat to 375 after first 5 minutes, if muffins are browning too much.
Note: If using presweetened applesauce, adjust brown sugar accordingly.
