Best Cinnamon Applesauce Muffins

Hellllllllllllllllo, again! It’s me, Lily! Do you like applesauce? How about muffins?? Today, I’m sharing a recipe for Mini Applesauce Muffins. They were so delicious. I liked that there was applesauce in them!ย You couldn’t really taste the applesauce, but it made the muffins super moist and yummy. I also LOVED the cinnamon and sugar top. It was really fun to dip the muffins in the cinnamon sugar, and it made it taste so good. They were really easy to make and I think everyone in your family will like them!

I think these cinnamon applesauce muffins would be nice to eat for breakfast, or even as a snack. This recipe makes so many of them, they could probably last for a whole week! Or maybe less than that. They’re so tasty, it’s really hard not to eat a bunch of them at one time!! My mom says you can store them in an air-tight container for a little while and they’ll stay yummy. Go ahead and try them for yourself! I hope you like them as much as I do.

How to Make Applesauce Muffins:

  1. Lightly spray the mini muffin pan with cooking spray and set aside.
  2. Cream the butter and sugar until they are well combined. Fold in the egg and applesauce.
  3. Combine the remaining dry ingredients in a separate bowl and mix. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix well to create a batter.
  4. Spoon the batter into the greased mini muffin pan, filling each about 2/3 full. Bake for 11-13 minutes.
  5. Meanwhile, combine sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl. Melt the butter in another bowl.
  6. Let the muffins cool for a bit. Once they’ve cooled, dip the muffins into melted butter and then into the cinnamon and sugar mixture. ENJOY!

  1. Yum!! Muffins are my favorite thing to make for breakfast! And I always only do mini ones. Can’t wait to try these!!

  2. Happy Easter Lily guess what do you want to know something I got a new niece and guess what her name is her name is Lily Ann Huntley she wieghs 6 pounds and 8 ounces and I love pizza and I love dessert and Easter egg hunts and crafts

    1. I made these with 1 cup of applesauce and they did not turn out at all…try 1 applesauce kidsize cup! That makes so much more sense! ๐Ÿ™‚

      1. Hi Beth! I updated the recipe. It’s suppose to be a kid-size applesauce cup. I assumed everyone would understand, but I should have been more clear. Sorry they did not turn out. ๐Ÿ™

        1. Oh no worries at all! I just quickly glanced at the recipe! Made it again and they turned out picture perfect! Thanks Kristyn!

  3. NO children here. So instead of buying cups for recipe, can someone please measure the amount of the applesauce in the cups and stop the questions. Thank you.

  4. What is the measure for kids size – have never heard I’d such a thing!! PLEASE give a measure
    cheers S

  5. 4 stars
    Made these for — of course — the missionaries! They’re going to love them!!! Thanks again for all your good yummies!! I don’t know why this won’t let me rate 5 stars, just 4, but it is a 5 star!!

  6. 4 stars
    Delicious! We added a half a teaspoon of vanilla to this recipe. Amazing! Thank you.

    PS: It won’t let me give 5 stars, but I would if I was able.

    1. I personally haven’t tried, but I’m sure you can. Maybe just do the last step when you are about to eat them – the dipping in the butter and cinnamon/sugar mixture. Let me know how they turn out!

  7. Can you clarify if the applesauce should be sweetened or unsweetened. We don’t have any kids sized cups in the house right now but we have unsweetened applesauce. Just want to know if they wouldn’t be sweet enough if I went that route… if so, suggestion for adding sugar? Thanks ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. We used the sweetened applesauce. I wish I knew how the unsweetened would taste or if the sugar amount would make it sweet anyway?? You could make it as is and taste the batter before baking and see if you’d need to add more sugar? I just wish I knew, but haven’t tried with unsweetened. Let me know what you do!

  8. Not sure what I did wrong here but I followed the directions perfect and the batter was like dough and stayed in the exact shape I put it in the muffin pan as…… Peaks and all…
