Did you know there are over 7500 varieties of apples grown around the world? And, to this day, the majority of apples are still hand picked! And do you know the apple is part of the rose family? I guess that explains their pink blossoms??

We have an amazing apple tree in our front yard… and while we were away Ethel, our innsitter, picked many apples and left us some wonderful applesauce.  This is one of the recipes I used the applesauce in:

Recipe for Applesauce Muffins

What you’ll need:

  • ½ cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 ¼ cups wheat germ
  • 1 ¼ cups quick oats
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • ½ cup brown sugar (packed)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • ½ cup canola oil
  • 1 slightly beaten egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

What you do:

1. Preheat oven to 400oF.
2. Spray 24 mini muffin cups with non-stick cooking spray.
3. Combine all of the dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl.
4. Add to the dry mixture the applesauce, oil, egg and vanilla extract. Mix only until all of the dry mixture is moistened.
5. Spoon into the muffin cups, filling 3/4 full.
6. OPTIONAL: If you like cinnamon and sugar combine 3 teaspoons sugar with 1 teaspoon cinnamon and sprinkle on top of each unbaked muffin for that extra cinnamon taste.  Personally I just added a walnut to the top.
7. Bake 15 – 17 minutes until golden brown (toothpick inserted into center should come out clean).
8. Remove from muffin cups, and let cool on a cooling rack. Serve warm or cool. Any that you don’t eat that day can be frozen and microwaved for a quick snack later in the week.
