Applesauce Oatmeal Muffins
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Like an oatmeal raisin cookie for breakfast! As my daughter said after her first bite "I've never had a muffin before, until I had this!"
1/2 cup of butter, room temperature
1 1/2 cups of brown sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 1/4 cups of flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons cinnamon
2 cups of applesauce (unsweetened)
2 cups of raisins
2 cups of oats
In a mixer cream the butter and brown sugar. When well mixed add eggs and vanilla until light and fluffy.
In a separate bowl sift together dry ingredients, and add to the mixture alternately with the applesauce. Mix well. Stir in raisins and oats.
Pour into lined muffin tins and bake for 20 - 25 minutes until firm to the touch. Let cool about 5 minutes before serving.
