Mini Applesauce Muffins – GREAT make ahead breakfast.Quick homemade muffins rolled in butter cinnamon and sugar! Butter, sugar, eggs, applesauce, flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon. These things are SOOO good!!! Way too easy to eat! #muffin #breakfast #applesauce
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.

Was looking for more of an apple tast, but maybe it was just the apple sauce I used. Loved the texture though. I also used coconut oil instead of butter.
I made these for breakfast this morning. Just yummy. Everybody liked them. I dipped some in plain sugar and some in cinnamon/sugar. Compliments from kids and adults as well. I used 2 tsp. of Baking Powder. Thanks, great recipe.
Could you give me the recipe for the applesauce please?
I may have used just a tiny bit too much baking powder as i pretty much eyeballed everything but they were a huge hit for everyone, adults and children alike! Love the butter and cinnamon sugar dip at the end. I added about double the cinnamon. Must try!
I didn't care for the overwhelming baking powder flavor. Does it really need 1 Tablespoon?
These look really good! And perfect for Mother's Day brunch – thanks! "Pinning"
This brings me wayyyy back to my mom making mini muffins with the sugar/cinnamon on top!! It's really a simple, but insanely delicious touch! I can't wait to make these.
