I found this online recently and knew I had to try it. Since I was out of applesauce, I used apple butter.
I tweaked a few other things and wasn’t sure how it would turn out, but we ended up loving these. I froze some of them and reheated them today and they were still delicious.
Apple Butter Muffins
- 1 cup rolled oats
- 1 cup milk
- 1/2 cup apple butter (I used this delicious homemade apple butter recipe.)
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup flour
- 1/2 cup raw sugar (or brown sugar)
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 1/4 cup raisins, optional
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Mix together oats, milk, apple butter, and eggs.
Whisk together flour, 1/2 cup sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and mix until just combined. Stir in raisins.
Spoon muffin mixture into greased muffin pan. Sprinkle tops of muffin batter with sugar. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until done.
Makes one dozen muffins. Freezer-friendly.
