  • 1 apple (peeled, cored and shredded)

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Line a muffin tin with paper liners. This recipe makes 24 muffins so you will need to bake it in two batches.
  3. Using a mixer, mix together the apple sauce, vegetable oil and vanilla.
  4. Add the eggs, mixing in one egg at a time.
  5. In a separate bowl whisk together the flour, sugar, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt.

  7. Add the sugar/egg mixture to the carrot/flour mixture and stir until just moistened.
  8. Scoop the muffin batter into the prepared muffin cups.
  9. Bake for 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into centre of a muffin comes out clean.

Notes

We use homemade apple sauce for these muffins, but any apple sauce you have on hand will work just fine!
