I had some applesauce that I needed to use up before it expired so I thought to myself, why not make some Applesauce Muffins?

These muffins are very easy to make as you would expect and calls for simple ingredients you probably already have in your pantry.

You can use 3/4 cups of Splenda – or any artificial sweetener – instead of the white sugar.

I like to add raisins and chopped nuts (pecans) to my muffins but this time around I left out the pecans as I was sharing these with someone who has a nut allergy.
