These mini applesauce muffins are so delicious. My favorite part of the muffin is the crunchy cinnamon sugar coating on top. These muffins don't have an overwhelming applesauce flavor; so no worries if you don't like applesauce. The applesauce really helps keep these muffins super moist.
The muffins are quick and easy to make. I can whip them up in the time it takes to preheat the oven. They are great for a quick breakfast or an after school/work snack. I think they would be a great treat to make for Mother's Day this weekend.

Spoon batter into prepared mini muffin pan. Fill each 2/3 full. Bake for 12-15 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool slightly before removing muffins from pan.
