Applesauce Muffins

This past weekend I made these yummy muffins.  Sorry I don’t have a picture. They were pretty much gone in a day!

I found this recipe in the ad for Giant food – Jan 1 – Jan 7.   It looks like this is from Cheerios website but their recipe section is currently not working.

Applesauce Muffins

2 cups Cheerios cereal (crushed)

1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

1/2 cup packed brown sugar

1 tsp. ground cinnamon

1 tsp baking powder

1 cup applesauce

1/3 cup fat free (skim) milk

2 Tbsp. vegetable oil

1 egg

1/2 cup raisins (optional, but highly recommended!)

3/4 tsp. baking soda

Heat oven to 400 degrees F.  Spray bottoms only of 12 regular-size muffin cups with cooking spray.  Crush cereal.  In a large bowl, stir together cereal, flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, baking powder and baking soda.  Stir in remaining ingredients just until moistened.  Divide batter evenly amoung muffin cups.  Bake 18 to 22 minutes or until golden brown.
