Honey Applesauce Muffins

We try to eat healthy.  That means we gradually make sustainable changes to the way we eat.  Someday (ha!) we may even reach these heights.  But for now we are working on not buying things loaded with preservatives,  eating more fruit and veges and less grains and sugar, eating healthy fats and fermented food, etc.  I’m also working on is getting to know my ingredients.  Reading every label and understanding the nutrition of each ingredient I put in each dish.  And believe me, it’s a work in progress, we are certainly not above ordering pizza or our favorite Mexican food on a busy evening!

So these muffins were a step in weaning us off our constant sweet tooth. And they were delicious!  I made them for dinner last night with grilled chicken and garlic braised green beans, and then warmed leftover muffins up and gave them to Ryan for breakfast this morning with a sides of sausages and coffee.  Mmmm…morning smells at 5:30am.

1 1/2 cups white whole wheat flour

Divide into a greased muffin tin (my batch made 8 standard muffins) and bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.

  1. Thanks for the recipe, I’ll have to give these a try! When we first moved here I was awful about cooking nutritiously, but since getting pregnant we’ve become a little more aware of things that need to change. Mostly eating more fruits and veggies and watching labels (and a lot less sugar…most of the time). But at least we’re starting somewhere!
