Hellllllllllllllllo, again!

It’s me, Lily!


Are you having a great Easter weekend? I’m having SO much fun! I have a 3-day weekend!! Last night we had a little party at our house, and it was awesome. We had pizza, dessert, and made crafts and had a Glow-in-the-Dark Easter Egg Hunt. Me and my friend were in charge of craft stations. I was in charge of the Easter Egg craft and she was in charge of the Bunny and Chicks Craft. It was really fun!

Has your Easter weekend been good? I sure hope so. My mommy and I are going to dye some Easter eggs tomorrow, and I can’t wait!

Today, I’m sharing a recipe for Mini Applesauce Muffins. They were delicious. I liked that there was applesauce in them and I LOVED the cinnamon and sugar top. They were really easy to make and I think everyone in your family will like them.

Thanks Lily and Happy Easter!


Is it one kids size applesauce snack cup? Or 1cup if applesauce?


    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™‚

      Lil' Luna

      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™


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

    Lil' Luna

    1 kid-sized applesauce. ๐Ÿ˜‰


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.


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

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!!

    Lil' Luna

    LOL!! I love it, Donna!! So glad you liked these and I hope the missionaries did too. Looks like they’re being fed real well. ๐Ÿ™‚


My picky eater liked them, eventhough she doesn’t like apple sauce. A kid size cup is 4 oz or 1/2 a cup.


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.



Can anyone tell me if the applesauce muffins are suitable to freeze?

Thanks ๐Ÿ™‚

    Lil' Luna

    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!


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™‚

    Lil' Luna

    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!

Alison Pounds

How do you store them? And for how long, etc etc

    Lil' Luna

    Store them in an airtight container and would probably last about a week. Hope that helps!!

Hi Lily,
These mini applesauce muffins look so yummy!!
I’m also a huge fan of cinnamon.
Thanks for the lovely recipe! ๐Ÿ™‚


Hi can you use blue bonnet light instead of real butter?

    Lil' Luna

    I haven’t personally used that, but it should be ok ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks so much!
