Double Apple Nut Muffins Recipe
Recipe type: Dessert, Snack
  • 1 cup smooth unsweetened apple sauce
  • ½ cup sugar (I usually just cut this in half so it is a bit more healthy)
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • ¼ cup canola or vegetable oil
  • ¼ cup plain yogurt (for my dairy sensitive son I just replace this with apple sauce)
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups flour (I only bake with multigrain flour that is high in fiber, you can simply use all purpose, or half whole wheat half all purpose – you won’t be able to tell the difference)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ⅛ teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 cup peeled, cored and finely diced apples (about 2 medium sized)
  • 1 cup raisins
  • ½ cup chopped walnuts or pecans
  1. Preheat the oven to 350° if you are baking a loaf or 400 if you are baking muffins. Grease 9x5 loaf pan or muffin tins.
  2. Combine apple sauce, sugar, brown sugar, eggs, oil, yogurt, vanilla in a large bowl.
  3. In another bowl combine all dry ingredients. Stir the dry ingredients with the wet ingredients just until they are combined.
  4. Fold in diced apples, raisins and nuts. Scrape the batter into prepared pans.
  5. Sprinkle the top with raw or turbinado sugar to get a sweet and sparkly finish.
  6. Bake the loaf for 50-55 minutes on 350°, or muffins for 15-17 minutes on 400° until an inserted wooden skewer comes out clean.
