Welcome to My Kitchen Serenity!  I’m excited to share with you our favorite cinnamon applesauce muffin recipe!  Cinnamon sugar has always been a favorite for my children.  And I grew up on cinnamon sugar toast!  So, topping these muffins with cinnamon sugar was a no brainer.  This easy muffin recipe is ready in well under 30 minutes.

This recipe calls for Bisquick instead of regular flour.  Bisquick gives the muffins the slightest hint of a biscuit.  Using Bisquick ensures a light and fluffy muffin and I just love the texture and taste.    

 

These muffins are moist and full of apple cinnamon flavor! Have them for dessert with your favorite coffee or tea. Pack one inside a school lunch bag.  Cinnamon applesauce muffins are wonderful breakfast muffins, too!

 

What Can You Put on a Muffin?

For these muffins, I like to slice a hot muffin in half and put a pat of butter inside.  For day-old muffins, slice one in half and toast it.  Then, spread some cream cheese on both halves.  Apple butter would also be a nice addition.

 

Ingredients for Cinnamon Applesauce Muffins

2 cups Bisquick

1/2 cup applesauce

1/4 cup sugar

1/4 cup milk

1 egg

1 tsp cinnamon

3 Tbsp Oil

1/4 tsp vanilla extract

1/2 cup chopped nuts (optional)

CINNAMON SUGAR TOPPING:

1/2 cup sugar

1/2 tsp cinnamon 

2 Tbsp melted butter

 

How to Make Cinnamon Applesauce Muffins

STEP 1: Preheat oven to 400F.  Lightly grease muffin pan or use paper liners.  OXO offers a wonderful, heavy gauge muffin pan with easy grip sides…find it here.

 

STEP 2: Mix sugar, cinnamon, applesauce, egg, milk, vanilla extract, and oil in a large bowl.  Then add Bisquick and blend well with a whisk.  Mix just until blended because if you overmix, the muffins will be too dense.  

 

STEP 3: Fill the muffin cups 2/3 full then bake at 400 for about 10-12 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. 

 

STEP 4: After baking, brush tops of muffins with melted butter.  Sprinkle tops with cinnamon sugar mixture.  Enjoy!  Makes 8-10 muffins.

What is the Best Way to Store Muffins?

You can store muffins at room temperature for up to 3 days if they’re stored in an airtight container.  You can also freeze muffins for up to 3 months if you wrap them tightly in aluminum foil or place in plastic freezer bags.
