These applesauce muffins are a favorite around here. They are wonderful any time of year, but we especially enjoy them in the fall and winter season when you just want that warm, baked spice smell.

These muffins are a breeze to whip up and are so delicious warm with butter, but they also freeze wonderfully too, making them a great thing to keep on hand in the freezer for quick breakfasts, snacks, or treats for company.

I hope you’ll try these muffins and let me know what you think!
