Healthy applesauce/pb muffins

It’s not very often that I tweak a recipe and still have it come out yummy.  Before you ask, Yes I was playing with my mini muffin maker again.  You just can’t beat the cuteness and ease of little mini muffins!

With that said I must say these taste very good and I am happy to share a new recipe with you.

1 cup Tom Sawyer flour, 1 tsp baking powder, 1 tsp baking soda, 1/2 tsp sea salt, 1/2 cup overflowing applesauce, 1/4 cup honey, 1/4 cup organic almond butter (I used the creamy oily almond butter on the top so if you don’t add 1 tbsp more oil) 2 eggs, 2 tbsp oil, 2 tbsp brown sugar.    and I just realized I left out the 1/2 tsp vanilla so you can add it or not.   Also depending on the flour you use, you may need just a little water.  recipe called for orange juice but I left the extra liquid out among other things.

I threw it all in a kitchen aid mixer and let it go while I did other things, few minutes later I had a batter the consistency of pancake dough and I poured it into mini muffins and baked.  1/2 way through I sprinkled the top with sugar.  My son will eat muffins more readily if he sees the sugar on top.    bake until a toothpick comes out clean so time will vary depending on size of muffin pan.   I baked at 400 for about 10 minutes.

I seriously wanted to sit down with a few and a cup of coffee but alas I did not make these for myself so I will leave them be for now.
